I am creating a FTP site that I want multiple users to upload files to. I don't want each user to see other uploads so I assume I will be using FTP User Isolation. However, do I create users accounts for each client that uploads? Do I do that as LocalUser / Domain user / or is there some other way. I don't want them accessing my domain or other uses on the server. The only thing they will do is upload files.
Not sure what OS, etc. that's important. If it is Windows, here's what I've done in the past.
I'll just assume local user accounts:
now when BOBJONES logs into the FTP site he is in the BOBJONES directory. If he gets wily and tries to do a cd .. to go up to the parent/root he'll get knocked into the DEADEND folder and won't see the list of everyone else's home folders, etc. (NOTE: he can get back to his home folder by typing cd BOBJONES still)
ONE FINAL NOTE: anybody that has a user ID but no virtual directory named the same will get defaulted to the root directory which has been changed to DEADEND.
