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?

you should point the ftp to c:\interpub\hots

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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It's all good, I got it.

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

Thanks for your help.
