IIS 60 FTP server write access denied

Posted on 2007-11-16
Last Modified: 2013-12-02
Have Win SBS 2003, IIS 60, ISA 2004, running ftp server. Can get read access with either anonymous or authenticated access. Cannot get write access either way. I have turned on write access in FTP properties, gave user perms in FTP properties, gave user account perms to folder, ISA is configured for all user inbound and outbound. I can set for authenticated access, get on the server, go through Windows Explorer and connect. I get authentication prompt and can upload files. That seems to indicate it has something to do with ISA.

open the isa GUI - right-click the isa outbound rule - select configure ftp - untick read-only box

from experienced, sometime FTP security through IIS plays up and pretty frustrating to troubleshoot.

to solve my issue in the past, re-create the FTP site in IIS which solve the security issue.

cheers, mcse2007

A little surprised at you bottom-posting like that Nyah, you are normally a little more careful than that.

Hi all, I fixed the problem by recreating a new ftp site under IIS, and during the creating wizard, there is a page you have both read and write tick box, tick both. then I have full access to it

I meant IIS, not ISA. this FTP server i am creating is in internal network and for internal use only, ISA is not involved at all. During the FTP server creation wizard in IIS, you will see the tick boxes for both read and write, I ticked both, it's working fine. But I haven't tried setting write restriction for any user, because I don't need it.

Got you - thanks for the clarification. On normal SBS Premium installs, ISA is involved regardless of whether you want it to be or not as the ISA is on the SBS server that hosts the IIS/FTP service but if yours is setup differently then I'll keep my nose out lol :)

oh.. thanks for letting me know, I didn't even know ISA comes into the same server for IIS for SBS, the enterprise ISA we use is standalone server as backend firewall, so ISA is not in question at all.
