Default Multiple ftp sites


I understand exactly what you want to do and here is how I did wit
IIS6.

I have the FTP site configured for isolated sessions and each sit
owner has a unique user account and corresponding directory:

C:\Inetpub\ftproot\LocalUser\siteOwnerA
C:\Inetpub\ftproot\LocalUser\siteOwnerB
C:\Inetpub\ftproot\LocalUser\siteOwnerC
etc.

Then within each of the above directories I created a symbolic link t
that users' site root. For example:

C:\Inetpub\ftproot\LocalUser\siteOwnerA\www
is linked to:
C:\Inetpub\sites\siteA

Unix-like symbolic links are supported on NTFS since Windows 2000 (NTF
5). Microsoft calls them reparse points. The OS does not come with
tool to create them, but you can get one from the Windows Resouce Kit
The utility you want is called linkd. You can find it on the ne
individually if you don't want to get the whole resource kit.

There are other 3rd party tools that can create reparse points such a
MKS Toolkit.

Let me know if this helps or you need further info.

Interesting, how about creating a virtual directory at the ftproot with the
name siteOwnerA and mapped to the webpath?
