You need to download an FTP server and run it on your machine.. you can use Serv-U or WarFTP or a hst of other ones. Then you select a directory that will be the FTP directory, put your files there, create a couple of users and give them the passwords.

Don't use IIS to share files like this... firstly there is no authentication (yes yes i know you can set up authentication but bear with me), and also its not the way its meant to be done.

If you're behind a firewal make sure it allows port 21 and port 20

indebluez,

Just a quick note, there is a neat FTP / TFTP server in our download section which is excellent and provides nearly all the functionality one would want from such a service. It's only a few hundred KB's, fast and very light on your system - give it a go, I'm sure you will like it!

cheers,

Or better yet... read about the protocol and then write your own FTP server :) shouldn't be too hard to do !!

IndeBluez –

To create a user list for IIS FTP you would need to create a list of users in Administrator Tools, just as if they were a user on that box, might want to create a new group and nest your users in there. Then in IIS select that group and allow IIS to handle the passwords.

I agree with Sahir and Chris however on using a different FTP Server, IIS is good if you need something now and don’t have anything right handy. You might also check into encrypted FTP servers/clients such as: SurgeFTP -- netwinsite.com/surgeftp/
