We are trying to set up an SFTP server that is mapped to multiple hostnames, such as that the the hostname the user connects to determines their virtual home directory. For example, if the user connects to "example.com", the home directory should be "C:\example" (although "example.com" would work as well); if they connect to "foobar.com" the home directory should be "C:\foobar". Is there something like the %hostname% variable (which has the hostname connecting from)? Failing that, is there way to use an environment variable or blackboard field? Working with server 6.4.1 on Windows (2008 and 2012) but can upgrade if a later version has something that would do this.

Please check the very bottom of this Admin guide page. There is a %hostname% variable for Virtual folders.

Oops, my wording wasn't clear. I knew about the %hostname% variable, but that gives the name of the system the user connected from, not the name they connected to.
