Question Creating a Password-Protected directory for ftp Uploads & Downloads

Hello All!

Am new here; please excuse any blunders!

Am dealing with an off-site ISP UNIX server on which no Telnet access and no Anonymous FTP access is allowed, and which is hosting a client web site.

Need to create a separate area within that site to hold occasional outside ftp uploads and downloads using a different password and username than those of the site itself.

Can anyone help me with this?

Many thanks!

What is the OS? (% uname -a)
What is the version and brand of FTP (some folks load a different one then what comes with the OS) if not standard?

Hello and thanks for replying.

I don't presently know the answers to your questions - I am dealing with a Unix server at the ISP (Verizon in this case) that hosts my client's web site and would need to get that information from them - if they'll tell me. I will in any case ask!

My access is via Dreamweaver 4 and WSFTP Pro ftp clients.

I would think your ISP could give you an answer to your question - and sorry, didn't realize you had put in there that it was an ISP UNIX server.
