read only folder shortcut

By niall ·
Hi! I have a simple ftp program sharing out some files from our windows 2003 server. The folder it is sharing out is written to by several users and programs and is a whole mess of permissions that I dont understand. I am wondering if it is possible to create a shortcut to this folder, and make everything accessed via the shortcut be read-only. That way, I can let the ftp server share out the shortcut instead.
An alternative might be some simple way to make the ftp program itself only have read access to the folders.
I am new to windows 2003 and would like to avoid messing with the permissions as much as possible in case I screw it up.
Anyone got some suggestions!? thanks
