I have looked around the internet and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to set up user accounts for ftp log in on a 2003 Server.  Anonymous log in is fine and everything, but I want a secure log-in and have yet to figure out how to do this in the options on the Server.  Can anyone help me with this?

in iis manager, go to you ftp site properties and turn off allow anonymous connections.
That will force a user to have to log into the ftp site, the user must then have an account on the local box or the domain, then you set NTFS security permissions on the folder to allow which user needs what type of access..
