Hi,

I have setup the FTP server in win2k Professional with SP1.  When i try to add the user in the "Security Account" tab(in ftp site properties), the <Add> and <Remove> command button is grey out. So i could not add or remove any account in the list.  In the list box, it only listed Administrator.  I'm login using Administrator id.

I try to go to <Directory Security> tab, all the command button also being grey out. What could be the problem?

This Win2k pro is configure as a standalone workstation.

Thanks

You don't need to set the security direct in the FTP Site...But you can use the FTP, to allow or remove Anonymous access,  or set the Security Direcly in Win2k on the folder,  by the normal means...U must be in NTFS to do this...

Also - I would update to SP2 and also download any relevant  patches- Use

start- windowsupdate.

Also - read the documents on Ftp on the MS site.

I hope this helps !
