    How to install and configure FTP Server on Windows Server 2003

    Step 1: Install Internet Information Services (IIS) and the FTP Service

    Because FTP depends on Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), IIS and the FTP Service must be installed on the computer. To install IIS and the FTP Service, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
    2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
    3. In the Components list, click Application Server, click Internet Information Services (IIS) (but do not select or clear the check box), and then click Details.
    4. Select the following check boxes:
    Common Files
    File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Service
    Internet Information Services Manager
    5. Select the check boxes next to any other IIS-related service or subcomponent that you want to install, and then click OK.
    6. Click Next.
    7. When you are prompted, insert the Windows Server 2003 CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive or provide a path to the location of the files, and then click OK.
    8. Click Finish.

    Step 2: Configure the FTP Service

    To configure the FTP Service to allow only anonymous connections, follow these steps:

    1. Start Internet Information Services Manager or open the IIS snap-in.
    2. Expand Server_name, where Server_name is the name of the server.
    3. Expand FTP Sites
    4. Right-click Default FTP Site, and then click Properties.
    5. Click the Security Accounts tab.
    6. Select the Allow Anonymous Connections check box, and then select the Allow only anonymous connections check box.
    Note: When you click to select the Allow only anonymous connections check box, you configure the FTP Service to allow only anonymous connections. Users cannot log on by using user names and passwords.
    7. Click the Home Directory tab.
    8. Select the Read and Log visits check boxes, and then click to clear the Write check box.
    9. Click OK.
    10. Quit Internet Information Services Manager or close the IIS snap-in.

    Re: How to install and configure FTP Server on Windows Server 2003

    Hey this means the FTP server is now configured for anonymous use. Now we can copy or move our files to the FTP publishing folder for anonymous access. That seems to be quiet interesting tip. Thanks a lot for it.
