FTP Server with Active Directory Groups

I am looking for an FTP Server solution that will run on Windows Serve3r 2008 R2 member server with the ability to use security groups for user authentication.

I have tried Serv-U and WS_FTP and both seem to be driven by the organizational unit the user is in. In our business our users work on several different projects, so we use security groups instead of OUs to control permissions.

My goal is something like the

/ <root>
- FileSwap <All Authenticated Users>
- CodeSource <All Authenticated Users>
`Projects <Virtual Directories under this root>
      - Project A <Project A Group Members>
      - Project B <Project B Group Members>
      - Project C <Project C Group Members>
      - Project D <Project D Group Members>
      - Project E <Project E Group Members>

The ideal goal would be if a user is not a member of a project group they cannot not even see the folder under 'Projects'


I am welcome to thoughts, suggestions and ideas. I want to avoid having multiple FTP servers running for each project as I said before, our could be working on 1, 3, or all projects at the same time.


Thanks!

I haven't tried setting it to a group either.  It doesn't look possible in IIS.  

I have some ideas on how this could work but I'd rather test them first instead of sending you off on rabbit trails.

Thank you for the knowledge. I believe the way I want to do this, with the budget I have the easiest will be setting up multiple sites.

Thank you again for the insight
