FileZilla Sharing of Network Folder Enquiry

Hi All,

I'm running a basic server via FileZilla and all is working well with a folder share locally on the server.

When I try to share a mapped drive's folder contents via FileZilla it doesn't show any files. I believe this is because the folder is heavily locked down within our corporate environment, and I'm not sure when authenticating with FileZilla what type of authentication it gives at the AD level.

Basically my current set-up is as follows:
1. Network Mapped drive Z with folder "Stuff" is "synced" to local disk E:\Stuff
2. FileZilla User Account is set-up with visibility to E:\Stuff (This works OK).

I would like to have FileZilla sharing files directly mapped to it rather than syncing across first.

How do you experts think I can make this work?

Much Appreciated,

does filezilla run as a service (the server)?

Hi brednanmeyer, yes it does.

I have tried re-running it wtih "run-as administrator" but this still didn't resolve my requirement.

ok change the the "log on" properties of the service to log on as a user of the Domain with the privileges for accessing the share

and you will most likely have to use the UNC path
eg: \\server\sharename\path

as the mapped drives under your log on session might not exist under the user account logged on for the service
