Configure FTP to allow certain IPs only

I have a system with Win 2000 Professional. I have set it up as an FTP server using the IIS. I wish to limit the connection to certain IP addresses only. In the "Default FTP Site Properties" dialog box, and in the "Directory Security" pane, there are options for the TCP/IP access restrictions. However, I find that the "Granted Access" and "Denied Access" radio buttons are disabled. The "Add...", "Remove" and "Edit..." buttons are also disabled. In that case, how do I configure IIS such that it only allows certain IP addresses to FTP to it?

Yep, you are right. The options to restrict access in the Directory Security is greyed out. Apparently its only available in the Server Version of W2K.

What you can alternatively do is deny anonymous access and control the folder access via NTFS permission allowing only users with valid user id to access your FTP

Hope this helps

IS your FTP installation correct ? Make sure you have common files, FTP snap-in and IIS snap-in installed.

The buttons should be visible. Else try to reinstall IIS again.

What are the FTP snap-in and ISS snap-in? When I added IIS, I just inserted the CD and the installation seems to be ok. The radio buttons are visible, but they are disabled.

I'm suspecting that this option is only available for the Win 2000 Server version. What do you think?
