I have a new IIS 6.0 web server, and went to setup FTP access to same web directory in \\inetpub\wwwroot.  I added the users locally, gave them full control to their folder on \\netpub\wwwroot\username.  The FTP server has read write directory enable.  They are able to logon to ftp:\\ fine and go directory to their folder.  The can copy out and read the folder but are unable to write to the folder .   The same error occurs:  an error occurred copying a file to the FTP server.  Make sure you have a permission to put files on the server.  

It is a WIndows 2003 server, it's own domain, with no AD running, only DNS forwarder.  COuld someone please let me know the correct permissions, for I have fullcontrol to the folderand modify to the inetpub\wwwroot directory but must be missing an additional permission for ntfs.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated for the fullcontrol and modify don't seem to allow them to write at all.

Did you give full control in both NTFS and share permissions for the folder?  Since you showed it using UNC path notation I am assuming this is a share.

If the users do not have write in either the NTFS or Share permissions they will not be allowed to write files.

I have not shared the wwwroot folder yet.  The users folders are under the wwwroot folder by one level.  At the wwwroot folder and the user's folder the FTP access group has modify permissions on both in security.  The permissions tab is grayed out for share permissions.  The FTP service and the web service properties both point to the same home directory folder structure, wwwroot\.  The users logon fine and are taken directly to the folder with their corresponding  logon name.  But are unable to change the files, can only read or copy.  They ftp by typing in ftp:\\website.org    , the username and pw box appears and the logons are successful with no shares on the server.  

The FTP server allows write.

It's a stumper for I have double checked the 3 folders numerous times (inetpub, wwwroot, username)  and they have modify to all right now.  The permissions are the following:  note:  the username is a member of the FTP access group.  

c:\inetpub    Administrator   FC
                   Creator owner:  FC
                   FTP access (the group):  Modify
                   Interactive:   R, X
                   Iusr_machinename:  Modify
                   network:  R, X
                   system:  FC
c:\inetpub\wwwroot
                   Administrator   FC
                   Creator owner:  FC
                   FTP access (the group):  Modify
                   Interactive:   R, X
                   Iusr_machinename:  Modify
                   network:  R, X
                   system:  FC
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\username
                   Administrator   FC
                   Creator owner:  FC
                   Username:  FC
                   Interactive:   R, X
                   Iusr_machinename:  Modify
                   network:  R, X
                   system:  FC

Do we need the users group in the permissions?  I'm leaning towards missing a basic group...

Anyone,  I am able to logon to the server locally with an regular username, create a file and drop it in the FTP folder of that username.  THis works as local host from command prompt as well as through Explorer with the username.  BUT... when I try to drop a file from the Internet using the same username., the FTP server says I don't have permission to drop a file on the server.  Do I need to check Interactive or Network permissions.  Or better yet, does anyone have a list of need NTFS permissions needed for FTP folders.  ANy help would be greatly appreciated.
