Setting up an FTP server and adding user accounts using IIS
Posted on 2006-06-02
I am trying to set up an FTP server on my computer. I have followed the steps as directed in the tutorials and what I have done is below.
Fix my IP address to what I got from ipconfig /all.
Enable the port forwarding.
The question I have consists of two parts.
-Can I make user accounts for the FTP server without making user accounts appear on my initial windows login screen?
-How do I find out if FTP will work when connected to from a remote machine(provided I don't have another computer in a different network to try connecting)?
-The IP address I have fixed my IPs to is very suspicious-looking - 192.168.11.6 - looks a bit too standard. I am connecting through a router in my house which is shared with couple more people (I have gone through the steps of enabling port forwarding). Needless to say, when I check my IP on ipchicken for instance, it is different. How do I find out the IP address I am to use when connecting from a remote machine?
Thanks is advance.
