IIS6 FTP User Isolation keeps accessing root and not user folder

Posted on 2014-11-11

I have an FTP site configured on IIS6.0 on Windows Server 2003.

The site is configured for user isolation.

I have created a new virtual directory and have created an account with the same name.

When I FTP to the server instead of having access to the c:\ftp\useraccount folder for the account I get access to c:\inetpub\ftproot.

Can anyone help me to understand what I am doing wrong ?

Thanks.

Where does the virtual directory point to?

Have you also created an actual directory in the file system that corresponds to the virtual user directory and configured the virtual dir to use that as the target?

Also, have you granted the user access, of some type, to the physical location?

Yes, we create an alias and assign permissions accordingly..i.e read/write

The virtual directory in the FTP config should point to c:\ftp\useraccount.

Does the user account has at least "list" premissions on the c:\ftp directory?

Yes, it has mixed permissions from the root of FTP (c:\ftp)  - and list is included. A local group has been created.
The issue we have now resolved was due to it needed File and FOLDER - I believe permissions were set on FOLDER .

THanks for you peristence on this.
