IIS: FTP Setup - Isolated (no AD) Users
Posted on 2006-05-27
I'm trying to get the isolated user (no AD) configuration for FTP to work, but I keep running into directory inaccessible.
Now I setup the home for the ftp site as: c:\inetpub\ftproot\ and then created localuser under that and the user under localuser.
That fixed the error, but I need to be able to have the user access their web folder, which is m:\web\users\website. I've tried adding a virtual directory, but the virtual directory is ignored when the user folder is under localuser and gets the inaccessible error when the user folder doesn't exist (so it appears that the virtual directory is being ignored completely).
I've tried multiple setups, but haven't had any luck. I'm wondering what the proper way to set this up is so that the root directory is the web directory (m:\web\users\website).
