I believe that if you only want him to have access to that particular folder, you will need to set him up an ftp account with that username. That way, when he logs in, he will automatically go to that folder.

 

Host name: ip address

user: saforums@******

passsord: whatever you assign

 

remeber that the server is case sensitive, so everything must be in lower case

 

The user name above must be in that syntax, (username@yourdomain)
