I have a Windows 2000 server running FTP service.
The home directory for the ftp site is E:\dirHome.
Under E:\dirHome folder, there two subfolders: dirA, dirB.
Domain user accounts: userA, userB.
Security accounts\FTP site operators: suerA, userB.
When userA login to ftp site, it ends up with dirA, not dirHome.
When userB login to ftp site, it ends up with dirB, not dirHome.
The above setup was not done by me, that's why I have the following question.
Question#1: Where should I go if I need to make userA ends up with dirB when he login to ftp?

Thank you very much.

There may be a config file for FTP users, but I really do not remember exactly. I'll research it.

I hope this helps !

Hi SysExpert,
I check the first link and it makes sense. But I could not find iisftp.vbs in the server. And the iis running is version 5 not 6. When I try to create a new ftp site, I do not see those three modes. Any idea on where else to look at?
Thank you again.

Check the help in IIS and look for ftp and securit. How to config a user must be in there. Use the info from the previous links or search for IIS 5 info.

I hope this helps !

Use a better FTP server, plenty of free ones for windows. Start at Sourceforge
