I've never run into this particular problem any servers, NT or 2000. It would seem like a permissions problem. Perhaps you are setting up the users as Active Directory users and they are part of a group that has access to the root folder? I set up ftp accounts as local accounts on that server only, with permissions on only their folder. I also make sure not to inherit permissions on a new ftp, so the permissions never get changed on that ftp unless an admin does it. jon ----- Original Message ----- From: "Scott Dexter" <sgd at ti3.com> To: <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Sent: Tuesday, July 10, 2001 6:49 PM Subject: RE: [thelist] FTP Server for Windows NT? > > > > I really hope this is not a problem anyone has actually > > had...it is very > > basic. > > Actually, it is the very item that prevents us from using IIS in the first > place.
