Can someone tell me where the default location would be for an FTP Server log on a Windows 2003 Server?  I've got the FTP server setup and am having some issues with a client logging into it and want to view the log.  Yes, I do have Logging turned on as well.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Default FTP Path is set at C:\intepub\ftproot

Default FTP Log Path is set at: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Logfiles\W3SVC1

Hope this helps.

In the IIS Console.  

Right click Default FTP Site, choose properties and click the properties button next to logging at the bottom of the FTP Site Tab.  This will change the location of the log files.

To change the location of the FTP site itself.  Right click default FTP Site > properties > Home Directory Tab > FTP Site Directory box.

If you want your users to be able to view the logs, you can always point the logs to a subfolder of the FTP site itself :)
