• Have IIS and FTP service installed from Add/Remove Windows components on Add/Remove programs
  • The default FTP site isn't isolated
  • Stop the default site
  • Right click On FTP sites > New site
  • The wizard opens > Next
  • Type you description (ex:"My FTP server")
  • Choose the IP address and port for this server (IIS FTP server does not rely on headers, IPs only)
  • Choose "Isolate Users"
  • Enter the FTP root for the home directory
  • Choose Read or Read+Write
  • Now you are with the wizard

If you stop here you will get a "Err Msg: 530 User <Username> Cannot Log In, Home Directory Inaccessible. Login Failed." Solution:

  • under the FTP site root directory, create a folder named "LocalUser"
  • Under the LocalUser directory create a directory for each of the users matching the username
