FTP/FTPs IIS 7.5 NTFS Permissions Question

I am setting up a new FTP site in a Windows 2008 R2 Standard IIS 7.5 system. The site is setup with a pointer to a local folder on C:\Data\FTPs. Under this folder, I have a test folder called TEST with 2 subfolders; TEST\Input and TEST\output. This is similar to how our production FTP servers, running 2003 IIS 6.0, are running. We use NTFS permissions to limit what our external clients can and cannot do in these folders. For example, users can write files in the Input folder but cannot create new folders. They can only read from the Folders and subfolders in the Output, but also delete Files in there.

The new IIS seems to limit access through FTP Authorization to Read, Write, or Read+Write. Does anyone know how to get IIS 7.5 to recognize and limit access to the NTFS permissions set on the destination folder? I am logging in as a domain user (domain\TestUser1). The NTFS permissions are set to limit the access. I can log in using WS_FTP Pro with this user account and create folders in any of the directories though, which is not allowed by the ntfs permissions.

Thanks for the links. I think I may have answered my own question on this one though. The site was setup to point the data folder at C:\Data\FTPS. I removed the subfolders and started over. I created a user called tcpTESTa that had NTFS permissions set to allow read access to all the sub folders, but they could not create folders and could only write files in the Input folder.

After setting that up and then setting the FTP authorization to allow tcpTESTa read and write access, the NTFS permissions seem to have taken effect. I must have messed something up.

Thanks for the links though. These are very handy. I will keep these posted in our solutions database.

Not exactly the issue, but the issue appeared to be more realated to the permissions set in IIS with the FTP Authorization setting; something new in IIS 7.5. I think I had that messed up.
