The guy who runs the server and the back up guy are away really sick so I am trying to look after things (very badly at the moment)

I am setting up accounts for Web Sites and FTP for uploading files to the site.

So far for each person I have
(1) Created a user name
(2) Created an ordinary folder in C: for their use
(3) Created virtual Web and FTP directories that map to the above folder in C:

I set the permissions on the folder by adding them to the list and give them full control.

The web pages display when I create them on the server and add them to the users folder. The FTP just will not work I keep on getting permission denied for access. What permissions I am missing?

 Can give me a hint as to what to try next

Xavier,


Look at permissions in IIS. There you have to set that Domain Users or which users have acces to FTP sites.
Also you can give Read, Write, Browse acces to users and groups.

You have to do this at the top off the FTP store. (Default FTPsite in IIS)
IIS : Internet Information Store

GOOD LUCK : >>

Found it in the end. It was the ports the server was set to accept hhtp requests from, we had it set to 80 and 81 when it came from all over the place from the firewall proxy. We just set it to accept http from all ports
