Configure Directory Restrictions to Isolate Users in Physical Directories

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

Isolate users in physical directories when you want to isolate FTP user sessions to the physical directory with the same name of the FTP user account. The user sees only their FTP root location and is, therefore, restricted from navigating higher up the physical directory tree. Any global virtual directories that are created will apply to all users.

To Configure directory restrictions to isolate users in physical directories

  1. Open IIS Manager.

  2. In Features View, double-click FTP User Isolation.

  3. On the FTP User Isolation page, under Isolate users. Restrict users to the following directory:, select User name physical directory (enable global virtual directories).

  4. In the Actions pane, click Apply.
