5.1 - The Web Server Configuration
The FTP service. In
Internet Information Services, click on "FTP Sites" to see the status of
your FTP server.
Right click on "Default FTP
Site" and select "Properties".
Tab: FTP Site
Description - change the name
to what you like
IP Address - Can leave as "All
unassigned" or the specific IP address of your computer.
TCP Port - Port 21 is default
and should stay the same
Connections - Like the Web service,
10 is your maximum amount of connections
Log Files - You should log who
is coming to your site
Current Sessions - Lists the
people who are currently visiting your site.
Tab: Security Accounts
Allow Anonymous Connections
- This depend on what you want to do with your FTP server.
Username - This is the account
name that is given to the ftp user. It takes the form "IUSR_(your
computer name)". Do not delete this account in your control panel
otherwise people will not be able to use any of your Internet Services.
FTP Site Operators - Controls
who gets to administer your FTP site.
Welcome: Type in your greeting
or leave it blank.
Exit: Same as Welcome
Maximum connections: Insert
any number less than 10 since you're capped at 10. If you have 10

Tab: Home Directory
Local path: This you can change.
