Configuring FTP User Isolation

Updated: October 5, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

In FTP 7.0, you can isolate users to the root directory or a user name directory. You can also isolate them based on Active Directory settings.

Isolating users to a virtual directory when using user name directory isolation is new in FTP 7.0. When restricting a user to a user name directory, you no longer need to create a physical directory for each account.

Configuring the FTP server to isolate users to a user name directory using virtual directories disables the global virtual directory feature. To share a folder among multiple FTP users, you must create a virtual directory for each user.
