Hi,

Here is just an example from previous posts i have answerwed. It is a coles notes version of hte link above.

First, In FTP Authentication. Basic Authaurization should be enabled.

Secondly, In FTP Authorization Rules, Did you specify all the users as

Mode:Allow Users:administrator  Permissions:Read,Write
Mode:Allow Users:DomainUser\clientA        Permissions:Read
Mode:Allow Users:DomainUser\clientB        Permissions:Read

IIS user isolation required that the phyiscal root directories be setup like such matching the user ID.

D:\FTP Sites\LocalUser\administrator
D:\FTP Sites\UserDomain\ClientA
D:\FTP Sites\UserDomain\ClientB
D:\FTP Sites\LocalUser\ClientC
D:\FTP Sites\UserDomain\ClientD
 
The KEY folder here is "LocalUser" or "USERDomain".

Don't forget to restrict permissions so that only administrators or the Machine\Client(A|B|C) can read/write to the specified phsical folders.

USER ISOLATION:
Select the option "User name directory (disable global virtual directories) " in the FTP user isolation feature.

Now for the administrator. Here is the trick - Create a virtual Directory in IIS Manager under the D:\FTP Sites\LocalUser\administrator\<call it Root or --Toplevel--> and have it point to the D:\FTP Sites\.  Now your admin can login and go thorugh all folders with isolation setup.

User Account Types                    Physical Home Directory Syntax
  Anonymous users                        %FtpRoot%\LocalUser\Public
  Local Windows user accounts     %FtpRoot%\LocalUser\%UserName%
  Windows domain accounts          %FtpRoot%\%UserDomain%\%UserName%
  IIS Manager or ASP.NET custom  %FtpRoot%\LocalUser\%UserName%
 

Let me know if you have any issues,

Hey Hades666,

Thanks for the info.  Under Basic Authorization, do I set the domain name or not?

Thanks.

Just leave that empty. It mean it will look locally first and the scan the domain for AD users. - hades666
