FTP Login using Domain Accounts
Posted on 2006-04-05
Ok, We got a Windows 2003 SBS server setup. Our client deals heavily with people who send them graphic files. They want us to setup an FTP location on their SBS server with a UserName and PW - not annoymous - that they can give to a client who needs to send something to them.
So far - we have everything setup. However, the problem is, the only way a user can login is by typing the domain name first (ie domain.local\ftpuser). This is not good, they should only have to type a username and password, not the whole domain name.
I found somewhere that using the admscript I can set a "defaultdomain" but that isn't helping even after I have restarted the Services.
Since there is no "local" accounts on an SBS server, and we can only create Domain accounts the username we setup is in the Active Directory, so how do we can the FTP service to query the domain database for user accounts, and authorize them access to get in?
