How do we set up a FTP server using IIS

How do we set up a FTP server using IIS

How do we set up a FTP server using IIS

I need to set up a password protected secure website
for getting files from our clients.The clients should be able to login and then upload the files
We have IIS as our web server.

Any suggestions on how to approach?



RE: How do we set up a FTP server using IIS

First add FTP

Add/Remove programs
Add windows components
Select IIS, click Details
Ensure FTP is checked
IIS Dialog - Click OK
Windows Components Dialog - click Next
Wait for it to complete - click Finish

I don't really know the password protection bit so I'll leave someone else to answer that bit.


RE: How do we set up a FTP server using IIS

Thank you for the information. It is helpful for set up.

I am trying to use upload form from server extensions and it only works if it is a .htm page (and not for an .asp page).
I get no error for .asp page but the file does not get uploaded.


RE: How do we set up a FTP server using IIS

We currently do not have an ftp server but are looking into adding one which I've been researching.  Can someone please provide me with a list of steps or website guiding me through this process?  

Also is it OK to put it on a domain controller?  

And can someone recommend easy to use freeware for ftp server with security? Thanks for any ideas you may have.
