Do you want win2k to be the ftp server or just a client.

If it is server, you must install IIS | FTP server, and this is done in add/remove programs | Windows installation in control panel. Just add it and follow the wizard.

The client is just the command line client, or through Internet explorer with the syntax ftp://<servername or ipadress>


Hope this helps

Well we must connect to a customer network (UNIX); they dont seem to be able/know how to access a shared drive on our WIN2K machine, so they will send file(s) to us via FTP. What we want to do is
(i) set up a folder to receive files in
(ii) set up userID and password for them to use when sending a file

Is it what u call a server? (I'm kind of lost here - not my area of expertise)

Yes, that's a server.

So do this:
Open start | settings | control panel, and click add/remove programs.
In the left pane click "Add/Remove windows components".
Click "Internet Information Services (ISS)" once to highlight it.
Click Details
Check/Choose "File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Server" and click OK.
Click Next and the installation starts.
Click Finish

For the final configuration do this:
Open start | settings | control panel, and Click "Administrative tools"
Click "Internet Services Manager"
Rightclick the icon representing your computer, and in the menu choose properties. In "Master Properties" choose the FTP services and click Edit.

Here are all the properties you can edit.

Notice that a directory has been created in the root of your hd called inetpub. In here there is a directory called ftproot, and this is the default location, that people will meet when connecting to your server through FTP.

Go ahead and install and test it.

Hope this helps.
