I have an existing website on a windows 2000 server running IIS 5.0. I would like to set up FTP access for our site designer so he can upload pages directly to the site. How do I go about doing this and are there any risks that I should consider?

    CesarFTP from is a good freeware FTP server, which you can setup on your PC.

    Create a user for your site designer, and allow him access only to the folder needed.

    This will be pretty safe.
