I'm a newb with Server 2008. I tried using this document to set up FTP user isolation on my new web server - I'm used to 2003 but the process has definitely changed. I followed all the instructions in this document:
But this does not actually configure it the way I need it. This is a lesson to teach us the options. So I added my own server's IP address instead of the 127.0.0.0 recommended in the article, but I still cannot get anything to authorize. From CMD on my local box, I try ftp nocowebs.com (my current active test domain) and it connects, but then when i type in the user name, it disconnects. 'Connection closed by remote host'
Are there any gotchas I'm missing in this process for Server 2008? Or is there a more intuitive set of instructions to follow to get this live? I have inetpub and ftproot duplicated on my D drive and those are the instances I'm pointing to - could this be part of the problem? On my old server, I somehow had this working so that I could add a new directory to my list of websites, create a user that matched the new directory name, and boom - you could FTP right away with that user and only get access to that one folder.
But in 2008, it appears to be a trickier operation.
