This section provides a tutorial example of how to set up a FTP server with IIS (Internet Information Server).
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) - An Internet protocol that allows users to transfer files from and to remote computers.
If you have IIS (Internet Information Services) installed on your computer, you can set up your computer
as a FTP server. Here is how:
1. Run Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Internet Information Services.
2. Expand the "local computer" entry and the "FTP Sites" folder, you will see the "Default FTP Site" service.
3. Right mouse click on the "Default FTP Site", and select Properties. The properties dialog box shows up.
4. Click on all the tabs. You will see all the settings. Some of them are important to know:
- Port: 21
- Enable Logging: checked
- Log File Directory: C:\WINDOWS\System32\LogFiles
- Log File Name: msftpsvc1\exyymmdd.log
- Allow Anonymous Connections: checked
- FTP Site Directory Local Path: c:\inetpub\ftproot
5. Right mouse click on the "Default FTP Site", and select Start. Your FTP server should be running now.
6. Test your FTP server, run the commands in a command window:
Connected to localhost.
220 Microsoft FTP Service
