Setting up one FTPS with both basic and anonymous authennication folder dependent

Hi all, ok so I have been tasked with creating one FTP site that has two folders one that people authenticate to and can up and download. And another which has anonymous access for download only.

Running Server 2008 R2 IIS7

Can I do this with one site?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Each directory can have different authorization.  You will need to set up the site to accept both anonymous and Basic authentication.  You will also need to set the FTP Authorization Rules for each directory to an appropriate value: All Users for the anonym,ous directory and Specified roles or user groups with appropriate values for the non-anonymous directory.

Take a shot at it and let us know if you have further questions.
