  1. Hi
    I am working on company ftp ….. been asked to edit the front so that customers don’t just see a directory structure. I’m finding it hard to even google the question properly ..but i found your answer. I guess i don’t have ‘messages’ tab in windows server 2003. Is there any other way to do this? Do I need to create a webpage for each customer?

  2. never mind – i see that I clicked on properties for the virtual sites
    This is great – thanks very much
