Using IIS how can I allow CHMOD commands from FTP clients without risking security flaw.

I am running a WIN2003 Web Edition server. Some clients are calling wanting to run CHMOD commands on the server. Being as though it is IIS and I am used to Linux how can I allow for all users to be allowed to use CHMOD commands on a Windows based server.

You can't allow for all users to be allowed to use CHMOD commands on a Windows based server because that command doesn't exist.  

Can you provide an example of what kind of permissions you are wanting them to be able to change?

I want a user to log in with theier FTP client and be allowed to run the preinstalled chmod commands that comes with all FTP clients. And I would like to apply this to thier root directory so that they can add PHP CMS systems and such without calling us to have the permissions changed.

Well, that wasn't really an "example" of what you are wanting them to change.  Can you be more specific?  Can you give me an idea of what the basic use of these things are?

Because you have asked a question anticipating an answer which is not technically possible.  So, I need to have a better understanding of what your ultimate goal is here so that I can recommend a different way to do what you are looking to achieve.

I have found out that CHMOD is not even possible on Windows at all since that is a UNIX native command. I was figuring that maybe there was a port to Win2003 that would allow it. But all in all no go thanks though.

Isn't that what I said above?  If you would have read my response from a few days ago, you would have "found out" much sooner!
