How to setup FTP for mutiple sites with specific users accessing specific sites

Hi All,

I have just setup a Web server with 2008 R2 and IIS7.

I have multiple website and have different web developers which require FTP access to the site they are working now.

Now I don't want these contractors to be able to access everything, only the site they work on.

eg. the site I have (just to make it easy);

111.com
222.com
333.com
444.com

they are located in;
c:\interpub\hots\1111
c:\interpub\hots\2222
c:\interpub\hots\3333
c:\interpub\hots\4444

I have setup user accounts 1111, 2222, 3333, 4444
The server is in a domain called say DOMAIN.local. I have allowed ftp Basic Authentication with ftp authorisation rule to allow user 1111 access to the 1111 site duplicatied this to the other sites, I can access the 1111 site but none of the others work...

I have fiddle with FTP User Isolation but seem to be going nowhere.

It's not bigger deal if a user can 'see' all of the sites, as long as they can only access the sites I give them permission to access.

Any thoughts?

OK, tried that so;

setup FTP to point to c:\interpob\hosts and gave user domain\1111 access to it.

when I log on, I can see all 4 sites and can access all 4 sites. I only want user domain\1111 to be able to access the 1111 site

It's all good, I got it.

I needed to assign permissions on the actual folders through Windows Explorer.

Thanks for your help.
