Creating an FTP site

I need to create an FTP site from windows 2003. How do I know which IP to use and how many are assigned to my server? I need to set up just 1 user to be able to access the FTP site.

Any help!?

if you are going to access the FTP from internally then any ip shld be fine. but if you are going to access it from outside then you need a public IP where the FTP service is installed. on how to setup FTP please have a look at the link below.

If you are setting up internally then you can use the same IP as the server IP.If you want to restrict to just one user then on the ftp site properties just add this only user to have access.
If you are setting up externally then you need to open port 25 and then do a port forwarding.
