I would like to use my company's domain name to FTP files between employees but with a different log on so that the employess cannot access the other files and folders on the domain.

Is it possible to do this and, if so how, either by putting the files in a separate folder on the domain or by creating a sub-domain like ftp.domainname.co.uk; or do I have to use a different domain name altogether, which I would like to avoid if possible?

Thanking you in anticipation.

Your reply:
You have to create an individual FTP account for each user on the FTP server. You need to check which your web hosting provider if they allow you to do that through the web hosting provider's control panel.

My reply:
I rent my own dedicated server which I manage, although I'm learning step by step.

How do I do this? The server is running under Windows 2003.

Thank you for purchasing a license.

What FTP server software is running on your Windows 2003 system? IIS with the FTP service?

I rent my server from Fasthosts and it comes with a package from Matrix Servers, which includes FTP.

I'm not familiar with Matrix Servers. But the concept is the same on all FTP servers. You need to create a new user account in the FTP server's account manager for each user. You may want to refer to the documentation of the FTP server product. Your web hosting provider might be able to assist you as well.

Matrix FTP does not seem to provide the functionality you outline.

Does IIS FTP have this functionality?
