Continued from IIS
5.0 - Installation and Webserver
The FTP service. 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
ftp connections, that means that nobody will be able to visit your website
since the ftp and web both share 10 connections together.
Tab: Home Directory
Local path: This you can
change. Actually it makes more sense to make the root FTP directory
one level up from your website since you will probably administer your
website using FTP.
Tab: Directory Security
Not an option using this
version of IIS under Windows 2000 Professional
