  • How to restrict FTP access

    Hi,
    I have FTP server configured with different permissions for folders depends on their usage.
    I have 4 subdirectories under root directory.
    For example Root directory is "Home" and sub directories are sub1, ..., sub4.
    Through following URL "ftp://ipaddress/" then user name & password, user will reach the main directory and they can access sub folders.

    One selected user (alex) can access sub1 & sub2 folders, whereas he should not access sub3 & sub4.
    This alex user is not a domain user, he is local user of ftp server, has administrator rights.
    Is it possible to restrict that person from accessing those folders through FTP.

    Note: I'm using windows FTP not 3rd party FTP server.

    Thanks,
    Mani

    Remove the adminstrative permissions and configure the NTFS permissions as needed.

      I given power user rights to that user instead of administrator. Now NTFS permissions are applied properly and i can able to restrict that user however i want.
