I have IIS 7.5 running on Server 2008 R2 with the FTP role services installed. Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:

I want Users to be isolated to a specific FTP subdirectory depending on their security group membership: i.e.: IT_Users are jailed to FTP\it_users, Accounting users jailed to FTP\accounting, etc

Is this possible, and how should I configure?

Thanks!

The FTP services provided with Windows do not have that level of granularity.  An add-on like WSFTP, Bullet-proof FTP, or Filezilla (it is free) would be the best solution.

Come to think of it, you can, but it is a pain.  I would use Filezilla.  Check this link:

Filezilla will work with security groups/AD integration?

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

That I am unsure of.  Check the Filezilla docs.  Did also you check the link I supplied?

Yes, this article appears to be helpful. I'll read through this and let you know. On a side note, it appears that LDAP/AD integration is being developed for FileZilla:

Not a "be-all" answer, but it got me pointed in the right direction.

Thanks.
