Granting Permissions for FTP Folders


You can grant permissions for any folder or virtual folder shown in their respective list. If you want all users on the FTP host to have permission for a folder, you can grant the permissions to everyone (this includes anonymous users). If you want users who log on anonymously to have permissions for a folder, you can grant the permissions to anonymous.

To grant permissions for a folder:

  1. In the left pane, expand an FTP host, select Folders and select the folder from the list.
  2. Click Edit. The folder properties appear.
  3. In the User/Group list, select the user or user group for which you want to set or edit permissions. Click Edit. The Permissions dialog appears.
  4. If the user or group is not already in the list, click Add. The Permissions dialog appears.

  1. Select the user or user group from the list. The permissions for that item appear.
  2. Select the Permissions options:
No Permissions. No access to the folder. When logged on, the user or group will not see this folder.
