multiple users using FTP into 2003 serveer to edit website - But they can see others folders

Here is the scenario.

I have a 2003 server running IIS 6.
I host multiple websites for agencies using host headers
I have FTP running on the server

problem - Agencies use FTP to edit their websites.   They have also told be that they can browse other agencies websites and some have also updated the wrong folder.

I have created a localuser for each agency on the server, but the NTFS rights (of course) do not work with FTP. How can I make them see there directory only using FTP and not all directories.

Who said so!
IIS FTP is tricky to setup
What you have to do is
1- create a local user/account for each agency on the ftp server
2- in the ftproot or website root of each agency rename the site folder to the username (or create the user as the site folder) you should point the ftproot to the websites root in the default ftp site propreties
3- give NTFS permissions to r/w for each user on its folder onle (everyone must not have any permissions on the folders.. only the anonymous account iusr_servername read permissions)
4- now whenever a user logins using his account he should be redirected to his folder automatically

Okay seems easy.

When I set it up
I selected  "do not isolate users"
I then select their directory on the same server that is the same name as their local username.
I then select "read & write"
then finish

  But when I create multiple FTP sites, I can only create 2.  Since I am using host headers and only one IP address on the server, I can only use 1 ftp site using the ip address of the server and the other ftp site is using the "all assigned"  I need at least 4 ftp sites setup so that users can log in

I will accept your answer because that did work.  The only drawback is that you are limited to how many ip address are on that server nic or do some changing to allow more ports through your firewall.

BUT using Filezilla server edition is GREAT.  It does it all for you..

You can do that from 1 site only.. you differentiate users by their credentials..
