I am configuring an FTP server in Win2003 Server using IIS. I want to upload files to it using IE. I can access the desired directory and I can download files from it, but I cannot upload to it; the "Paste" button under "Edit" is grayed out.
In IIS I made a website:" www.my_web.com
", which has its home directory "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\the_we
b". Also in IIS, under the default FTP Site, I created a Virtual Directory "my_ftp", which has a local path of "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\the_we
. I do not allow anonymous ftp connections. I have a User listed in Active Directory.
I can reach the site in IE by "ftp://username:password
". I see the directory and I can download files. I cannot upload a file to this directory using Copy and Paste.
If this is a permissions type problem, what is the recipe, what is the "do this do that" checklist, for configuring permissions, security, sharing, etc. to let me upload files to this directory? I haven't found it and I need an example to follow. I have been flailing about without positive effect for too long. Thank you.
