Win2k FTP folder rights

By john_doe ·
I am currently running Win2k advanced server, and i have enabled the FTP server. The FTP server works fine, i can log in, browse, all that stuff. I disabled the anon login, and created a group on the server called FTP users. i added that group along with the admin group to have access. in the folder hierarchy, it seems that i can only give all folders read or read/write access, and not a mixture of the 2. some folders i don't want to have write capabilities, but other folders i do. Is there a way to set up so that some folders can have write access, and some can't?

You should be able to use NTFS permissions for this. Just grant permissions to the folders you want access to and take it away for others. Remember that the inheritance flows down so if it is a subfolder you want to block access to, you have to uncheck the inheritance box. Hope this helps.

That's what i kinda thought, but when i set up the shares it didn't seem to matter. I quite possibly could have done it wrong. I will go back, and make sure that i have done everything correctly. Thanks for the help.
