Specs: Windows 7
I have a windows server 2003 configured for FTP. In this server AD is not configured but is connected to a domain ( AD configured on another server). I want to allow the domain users as the same AD authentication to my FTP server. I made a Local Group in my FTP server and add users of the domain. Then given permissions to the FTP, but it is not working. It is allowing only local users configured in my FTP server. Can anybody help me

To create FTP sites with using Active Directory mode


In IIS Manager, click the local computer, right-click the FTP Sites folder, point to New, and click FTP Site.


In the Welcome to the FTP Site Creation Wizard, click Next.


In FTP Site Description, type a description for the FTP site, and then click Next.


In IP Address and Port Settings, type an IP address and port, and then click Next.


In FTP User Isolation, click Isolate users using Active Directory, and then click Next.


In the User name text box, type the user name, using the Domain\User format, or browse to the user name. Choose a user with minimal domain privileges. This user name is used to access Active Directory and read the home directory properties.


In the Password text box, type the password of the user.


In the Enter the default Active Directory domain text box, type or browse to the default domain name.


This domain name is used for the users who do not specify their user domain when they log on. In other words, a user connecting with the user name Domain1\User1 is authenticated against Domain1, while a user connecting as User2 is authenticated against the default logon domain. If a default domain is not named and a user does not specify a domain name, access is denied for all but anonymous users. Type the base domain name only, not the fully qualified name. For example, type MyDomain, not MyDomain.dept.microsoft.com.


Click Next. You are prompted to re-enter the password for the user entered in the previous steps.


Enable the Read and Write permissions as appropriate, and then click Next, and click Finish.
