Administrator can't login to FTP site root folder
Posted on 2007-12-05
We're using Windows Server 2003 Web Edition.
I've setup an FTP site with the "Isolate Users" option (non-AD)
I've setup the ftproot folder as below
When I try to access the FTP site using Customer1's credentials, I am able to login fine and see files in ftproot/LocalUser/Customer1
When I try to access the FTP site using Administrator's credentials, I can't login and I get the message
530 User Administrator cannot login, home directory inaccessible.
If I add a folder for Administrator... as in the example below.... Administrator can login fine but can only see ftproot/LocalUser/Administrator
The webserver not in a domain... it's in it's own workgroup.
User Administrator has full security permission to the root of the drive and the ftproot folder shows inherited permissions.
What I would like to do is this...
I have an internal account called Upload
1. I would like Upload to be able to connect to the FTP server and see ftproot and all it's subfolders.
2. I would like the anonymous account to connect to the FTP server and only see ftproot/LocalUser/Public
3. Any customer accounts would be able to connect to the FTP server and only see
Item 3 seems to work fine now...
Item 2 also seems to work fine now...
Item 1 is the problem.... I can't even do this as the Administrator...
I think once we can figure out why the Administrator account can't connect via FTP and see the root, I'll be able to get it to work on the "Upload" user account.
