Dynamic FTP welcome message

Hi all,

I was wondering if it is possible to have a "dynamic" welcome message when someone logs on to the FTP server.

I have setup a number of users that can access my FTP server and I would like to display a welcome message like:
"Welcome %username%, ..."

Is this possible in IIS?

Best regards,

Housenet is right. The FTP service which ships with NT/2K is not really what one would call a full-featured FTP server. It's mostly designed for anonymous downloads or web site maintenance, not for advanced stuff.

Thanks for the points. However, they should have gone to Housenet who first did give you the correct answer. I was just confirming that Housenet was right.
