Help with Isolated FTP Access on Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2013-01-08
Really need some urgent help with a problem please.
I've set up a virtual 2008 R2 Server for use by a number of different external clients to transfer files to my main client. This is a system I've set up successfully twice before on a real server and recently on another virtual server so I thought I knew what I was doing.
My problem is I've set up the FTP Site in IIS and set up an FTP Folder on the local Disk C: in which I have created 16 individual folders named FTPUser01 - FTPUser16. The physical path to the folders is as follows: C:\FTP\DomainName\ and in there are the folders FTPUser01 e.t.c.
I've shared each FTPUser sub folder on the network and made sure I can open the share using the UNC name. The share name is \\SERVERNAME\FTP\DOMAINNAME\FTPuser01 e.t.c.
I've created AD users named FTPUser01 - FTPUser16 and gone into the Attribute Editor in each user and set the msIIS-FTPDir to the appropriate subfolder name i.e. FTPUser01 and the msIIS-FTPRoot to \\SERVERNAME\FTP\DOMAINNAME
I've logged on to the FTP site from another computer and for testing purposes have entered username FTPuser01 and the appropriate password but each time I end up looking at the root folder (C:\FTP\DOMAINNAME) rather than the sub folder of C:\FTP\DOMAINNAME\FTPUser01 which is what I needed to happen.
Can anyone please tell me where I may have gone wrong as it's driving me mad and it's urgent I get it working properly so that each username logs on to their own subfolder.
