help IIS6 error 800a0046 permission denied wscript cmd.exe ftp

P: n/a
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0046'

Permission denied
=======================
Trying to find the solution is driving me crazy.

Using IIS6 on Server2003 SBS
Default website localhost
IE7 browser running under administrator xp account login

trying to use WScript.Shell to call cmd.exe to start ftp session from
classic asp webscript using vbscript

I've searched for solutions, here is what I've done so far... (sorry this is
long, trying to explain it all in first post for best advice)

IIS Default Website Properties Home Directory Execute Permissions:
Scripts and Executables

IIS Default Website Permissions : Full Control to IIS_WPG, IUSR_srvr,
IWAM_srvr
Used Windows Explorer to set security Access Control Lists ACL for above
user accounts to Full Control on:
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe
C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe
C:\Windows\System32\wshom.ocx
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot (the location of the webscript causing the error and the
ftp commands stored in a text file)

Restarted the website under IIS, restarted IIS
Still have the same error.

Here is the script portion:

Set oScript = Server.CreateObject("WSCRIPT.SHELL")
Call oScript.Run("cmd.exe ftp.exe
-s:C:\inetpub\wwwroot\ftp_commands.txt"),0,True)

Error occurs on the last line shown above.

I tried using other cmd.exe arguments, such as ver and dir, with same
permissions problem

I ran SysInternals FileMon, and here is the log snippet:

387 12:37:46 AM w3wp.exe:1900 QUERY INFORMATION
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe SUCCESS Attributes: A

so it appears to me that the permissions on cmd.exe are set correctly to
allow iusr_srvr to execute it...
Again, sorry this is so long, but I am really stumped and need some expert
advice on what to troubleshoot. thank you in advance.

Does ftp.exe require a user interface? If so, IIS will not allow it to be
run. If not, I don't see where you applied the above permissions to ftp.exe
itself.

Sorry I must have missed typing that part, but I tried setting permissions on
ftp.exe for IUSR_srvr

As far as I know ftp.exe is a command line interface, and does not raise a
dialog box. This code works on IIS5 on W2K IIS 5, but I guess IIS is super
locked down
