Hi

Just a quick question.

I have a windows 2003 server SP 2.  It also has IIS enabled.

My question.

How can i make my FTP site in IIS secure i.e. so its FTPS rather than just FTP.  I have already purchased an SSL cert for the website, i just want to also use it for the FTP too.

I know there are a few forms of secure FTP you can use like sftp , but i want FTPS .

Any advice or pointers will be greatly appreciated

many thanks

I was checking out the answers on the web. And so far the answer is clearly you cannot setup sftp or ftps on IIS.

NicksonKoh is correct, IIS does not support ftps or sftp.

Your best bet is a 3rd party solution, like free FileZilla: http://filezilla-project.org/
