Hosting a read-only folder with Robo-FTP Server
File and folder permissions in Robo-FTP Server are controlled by the underlying Windows File System.
By default, the Robo-FTP Server service runs in the security context of the built-in NETWORK SERVICE account. So a folder will be read-only to most types of FTP users if you modify the folder's security permissions such that the NETWORK SERVICE account is allowed to Read and List Folder Contents but Write permission is denied.
The general rule does not apply to FTP users that log in with NT Authentication. In this case, permissions are controlled by each individual user's Active Directory account permissions rather than the permissions of the account the Robo-FTP Server service is using.
