does anyone have a ftp-server source in visual basic or where I can find the resources to write one my own? The reason why I want to write a ftp-server is that excisting ftp-server don't get there username from ODBC (sql-server). I want to write an FTP-server that has the userdatabase as an SQL-server table.

uhh, I triy to write an FTP server like, Microsoft Internet Information Server. The problem why I can't use microsoft iis is that I want to link the user-database to a SQL-server table. So the users who login into my FTP server and send files are known in SQL.
