Windows 2000 Server

Posted on 2004-10-20

Ok, now I need to get some files onto the machine for my webpages.  I use TSC to logon to the server (which is not at my facilty).  I tried to set up a ftp but no luck.  Is there another way to transfer files from my client machine to the TSC without the ftp? I tried a drag and drop for client to TSC, no go.  Also, I am getting the error on ftp "socket connected - waiting for welcome message", just the hour glass, that is all that happens.  What may I be missing?

Also, I installed perl, do I have to activate somewhere to make a cgi-bin folder work with perl?  I tried a few things, nothing happens.

Thanks in advance....Precision

Can't comment on the perl problem, but there is a perl section on EE so post a Q there and you are sure to get a response.

As to your FTP problem.
Using the IIS manager, can you tell if the FTP site is up and that it has been configured to point to the foder where you want your ftp'd files to live.

OK, under the IIS manager it says ftp running, however, below is the error I get trying to ftp in.  Also, it seems on the tab "local directory" in the IIS manager, it is pointing to the right place.

Has the user account been granted permission to access that directory and has it been granted the "log on locally" right?

Ok, great, it does work!  Now I "granted access to all computers", will that have a security hole?

Go with the least priviledge model - only grant what is needed to work and nothing more.

You might find you really need granted access to all computers, but it doesn't hurt to test it first.
