I am attempting to setup an FTP site in IIS and I want to use "FTP User Isolation ", but I also have another FTP site on this box that does not have isolation turned on.

Now, I have both sites running on different ports and can log in to each.

Issue:  If I build a new use and give them the port of the new "Isolat'ed" site and they login fine.
But how do I prevent them from logging into the general site on port 21 with that account on that box ?

You must have given user permission to all to solve this problem try this.
For the every ftp user you create do this

Go to server manager >> user and groups >>select that user >> apply password or secondly you can do is go to that user in IIS and edit permissions >>> security >> select that user>> remove from group users

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the 2nd option, but when I go to 'Edit Permissions', I end up at the security page for 'wwwroot'.  and then I don't see that user, only groups and owners.

when I find the user from the ctrl-pnl, I don't have the option to change what groups they belong to, only user types: 'Standard', 'Admin', or 'Other'.

You can do more by removing the group users from it so next time wen you will create any FTP account in future you will not have to make changes every time.

Go to 'wwwroot' >>> properties >>> security >>> remove users group from there.
Hope this information will help you.
