Need to know how to be able to set FTP user accounts to automatically expire after a set period of time, such as two weeks.

The company that I am consulting for has the policy that user accounts must be created in order for users outside of the company to be able to download files from FTP sites.

How can I make it so that when we create an FTP user, the user accounts will be set to automatically expire after a set period of time, such as two weeks?

Our FTP server is hosted on Windows Server 2003.

If using Windows authentication, create a domain user and set expire for it by using ADUC.
For security reasons, also restrict the external user to only be able to logon to the necessary servers by using "log on to" in user account properties.
