I need to add FTP service to an existing webserver that is in the DMZ. The IP for this box is 10.10.1.10 which is running server 03, OWA, and one website that is live to the public. What is the best way to add FTP to this existing setup?

Depending on the needs of your users, you can add the Microsoft FTP service through Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel applet. The MS FTP service is a bit bare-bones for some purposes, however, so you might want to consider a third-party FTP product like SecureFTP from ipSwitch.

Hope this helps.

When I try to add a new FTP site, the current IP (10.10.1.10) is already in use with the default website.
