I am using Windows Small Business Server 2003 and I am hosting our website on the local server. I now want to allow others to update the website using Macromedia Contribute CS3. I need to know how to setup a secure FTP connection so they can get to the website and do updates.

If you manually set up the connection Contribute should allow you to specify SFTP. I'm not sure what happens if you set up SFTP in Dreamweaver and then export the key.

Thee issue is that I have created an FTP site on the small business server. I also have a sonicwall firewall that I have created a hole in for FTP. When I tell contribute what the FTP server is it never get there.

Try downloading SmartFTP and see if you can create a connection with that.  If so, then we've definitely narrowed it down to a Contribute issue.  If not, you need to check the FTP configuration.

I realize this question is a bit old, but since it was still open I thought I'd chime in...

Its not clear to me if you need the ftp access to be authenticated by Active Directory, or if you want to just have a secure way to provide access to a specified external user.  So I will give you the way to do both:

For configuration to allow Active Directory authentication (which will require a CAL for each user):

For configuration to not use AD authentication:
