We are trying to test a new process. We need to set up a virtual desktop type environment. This will be a temporary situation while we test the application then it will be hosted on its own dedicated server.

I wanted to provide ftp access but wanted to restrict access to a specific area partition and not give full access to the server is there away that this can be done

Hello,

You could create a local account rather than a domain account and restrict access to only a folder that you publish via FTP.

Create the local account from the command line

[net user ftpusername a_password_here /add]

Create a folder/partition where you want to store the FTP data or locate an existing folder/partition that will be used.

Set the local user account name to have 'full control' rights on the folder/partition security tab [right click > properties > security > edit > add > locations > choose the machine server name rather than the domain directory > add servername\ftpusername]

Do you also need help setting up FTP and firewall rules on/to the SBS 2011 box?

Best regards

Or just disable FTP access altogether, and use Filezilla server instead. It's easier to use, easier to understand, and easier to configure (dynamic ports, so your firewall is also easier to configure). Also better security.
