I have a company that wants to setup an ftp site on their network to allow other companies to download and upload files to/from their network. I have heard that a simple ftp site is not secure in SBS. Someone mentioned setting up a secure ssl website off of the sbs server using a separate static ip address with login authentication. Can someone give me some direction/options on what I should setup? I don't want to leave a security risk, but I want it to be as simple and straightforward as possible. I would also like to know if i am getting the wrong information about straight ftp in sbs-maybe it is fine and I am being too cautios...I also don't want to setup another server, but want to utilize their existing sbs 2003 server and network.
