setting up FTP server
« on: September 24, 2005, 12:21:43 am »
I've finally setup a remote desktop instance for my computer. This all works and such, but it isn't really helpful for file transfer.
So I'm planning to setup a FTP server, but I have never done this before. Does anyone know what to do? Do you need programs for it, or just open the right port and setup user accounts?

It doesn't need to be a full running FTP server, but just a way I can get to the files on my computer.

Thanks.

use the option "connect remote drives" with windows remote desktop and it will connect your local hard drives to the remote terminal setting.

If it's WindowsXP pro install IIS and FTP. If you want another programm Blackmoon FTP server is one of the best if you ask me. And free for that. :)

Thanks. I will try to setup that FTP server monday (then I'm at my usual computer again. I know I can do it remote, but I rather do it there (alot faster))

But the connecting local hard drives seem to work.

that WILL work...

you can install IIS than you can login with your windows credentials...

need XP Pro for that..

then you need to install IIS
control panel, software, add/remove windows components, and then IIS (you can choose, by clicking the details button, for certain options, but just click IIS and let windows install them)

then you can configure it by clicking right on My computer, and then click manage.
then expand services and applications (last one)
and there you find your IIS to configure...
