Workgroup setup question.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I've spent weeks trying to get my domain controller and network setup. Finally, I just decided to do a simple workgroup and I will spend time later learning about a domain controller. Now on my FTP, I can go to sharing for everyone and they can access from another computer. What I'm wanting to do now is only allow certain users to access certain FTP folders. What's a good way to do this? Do i need to setup the user on the FTP or certain rights on the pc that is accessing the FTP? Thanks.



Rep to whoever can help! Tutorials are great.

Example:
FTP has folders called pictures, templates, school.

I have a computer that is called workstation and I only want my buddy to be able to access and see templates. If I setup a user for my wife to were she gets on the workstation, she can only access pictures. I want to be able to access everything if I log in. Same rules apply for my design station.

Are they all on the same network? Why are you using FTP instead of windows file sharing?

If they're all local or on the same LAN.

Windows' Sharing Folders should suffice. You can set permissions on them too. To only allow certain users, and/or password otherwise. It's even easier if you've got them all in the same workgroup too.. That's usually the tricky part.. Or, is for me.. I can never get them to see each other xD.

Edit: Right click a folder > Properties > Sharing Tab > Set a share name / permissions > Done ?

I would use windows file sharing and not FTP.

Everything you want to achieve is possible through windows file sharing and permissions.

Microsoft-Windows File Sharing

As long as you setup permissions you can restrict directories as long as you don't share the entire drive.

now is this on EACH workstation/design station or set through the FTP??

EDIT:
they are all on the same network. I set Server 2008 r2 on my FTP in hopes to one day be able to deploy a domain controller DNS server setup.

FTP and Domain Controller have nothing to do with each other ... I think you're overthinking the scope of what you want to do.

You want to share files between Windows PCS on the SAME network along with setting up permissions?

FTP is not the way to do this ... it is A way to do this but it is not efficient for this ... especially since it's just a local network.

Just use Windows File Sharing on the server / computers, whatever.

I would:
1) Create user accounts on the server for everyone
2) Create file shares as needed
3) Create folders then assign them permissions. Right click on the folder, go to sharing then set as needed.

no i was originally trying to setup a domain controller and active directory but i stopped because i dont have the time to get it running.

Now by your way they would have to VPN to get access to the server, not by going to network connection, correct?
