I want to set up my development c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ as a ftp root using isolate mode under IIS6 / Win2k3. My goal is to give clients a ftp login that will point to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\clients
ite\ftp folder but have it so they can't go further up the directory tree, and I'm restricted to 1 IP address.
It seems that the only way I was able to login in a user successfully is by making the FTP root point to c:\inetpub\ftproot . Then created subfolders in the c:\inetpub\ftproot like so \localuser\username. This is fine, but my boss doesn't want the extra work of copying stuff manually from the ftproot to the appropriate wwwroot folder.
If I setup folder c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ as the root FTP site in non-isolation mode, any user can login fine to the ftp but has full access to everything in the ftp root regardless of the virtual directory that I point them to.
I need some help on this one, I already went through microsofts support section on the topic but it was of no help:
Is there a registry edit or anything that can force win2k3 to allow other folders besides c:\inetpub\ftproot\localus
er\ to run in isolation mode?
Am I missing something? Will a 3rd party FTP server software allow more freedom to isolate a user login to one folder only, no matter where i set the ftp root? Any recommendations?
