so i have installed the FTP services and set everything up (from what i know), i can access the server (as in entering in a browser ftp://ip and getting a prompt for user name and password) but do not have any users so i can not log into it. so my question
is how do i set users to access the server. i want to do it like this.
user: Jake (full control of the entire drive)
user :Movies (full controll of a folder named movies)
user: software (full control of a folder named software)
user: Ryan (full controll of the ryan folder)
user: Dan (full controll of dan folder and moies folder)
*keep in mind this is not on a domain or connected to an active directory*
Basically i am going to give a few friends the address to my ftp then there username and password so they can log on,
How do i set these accounts up?
Thanks in advance.

You can either create standard windows users and grant them access, or create IIS manager users and grant them access. You can use FTP user isolation to drop them into different directories depending upon the username.

What you would need to do is set up one FTP site and add virtual directory pointing to each user home folder.
Virtual directory name should be the same as ftp username.
Ftp username (windows account) should have permission on its own folder and home folder of the main ftp site.

And how do you do that? Could you give more details please? Thanks!
