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 www.aclogic.com 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.

Having an FTP running isn't a big risk as long as you don't allow anonymous logins. To set up an FTP using IIS, visit here http://www.iis-resources.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=69 .
