    IIS FTP Server

    Hi.

    We are running IIS on a Windows 2003 Server.

    We now need to create new users and give them access to upload via FTP to only specific folders. IIS is driving me nuts, as I can not figure out how to do this.

    Is IIS suitable for hosting multiple websites with multiple users, or should I find another FTP Server Application for this?

    Thanks.

    It's pretty easy to do.

    - Create your local user.
    - In your IIS MMC window, create a virtual directory in your FTP server with the name set to the username. Point the virtual directory you just created to the directory they should have access to.

    Much more detailed info - http://weblogs.asp.net/owscott/archi.../05/68423.aspx

    I've never had issues with the FTP server.
