Using Windows permissions

For hosts that use the Microsoft Windows or Microsoft Active Directory user database, you can manage user/group folder permissions from the Windows file/folder Security Tab.

Important: WS_FTP Server uses the highest permission restriction level to determine permission priority. For example, you can restrict users from areas that Windows permissions would allow by setting stronger permissions on the folder in the WS_FTP Server Manager.

To grant or change user/group folder permissions:

  1. Double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop, then navigate to the folder on which you want to set permissions.
  2. Right-click on the folder name to display a context-sensitive menu for the folder, and select Properties. The Properties dialog box opens.
  3. Click the Security tab to display a security-related properties page for this folder.
  4. Set the folder permissions for groups and users as required.
