FTP and Virtual Directory setup.


I am trying to setup an FTP site on our server with a virtual directory.  If I want to just allow the user to download a file that I provide them a URL to, and not be able to browse the directory, how do I do that?

Do you need help setting up the FTP server or are you just looking for the URL string to connect directly to a FTP server?
Here is the URL you will need with an example after that.

You will need to setup the permissions on the folders accordingly to not allow them to browse.

If you need help setting up the FTP server let me know what FTP server you are attempting to use.  Cerberus is a good Freeware FTP server if you are looking for one.  It is much better than the built-in IIS one in Windows.

Sorry Cerberus is not free for companies, just personal use...For Windows you will have to install FTP with Add/Remove Programs, Windows Components.

This article pretty much covers it all.
