I have a Windows 2008 Server, SP2 setup for FTP using iis 6.  How do I check if anyone's currently connected (active connections) for time when I'd like to reboot the server without interrupting any file transfers?  Thanks.

    To check the current FTP sessions, just go to the properties of your FTP site and click on Current Sessions.  It's at the bottom of the 'FTP Site' tab.

    Thanks - I tried adding counter parameters for FTP service for the local machine.  Connected via anf FTP client and then transferred a file.  The counter doesn't seem to be showing anything though...  Any ideas?  Plus (not downplaying your suggestion) there's got to be an easier way to just view the current active connections...  

    BTW I don't have anything called "Performance"
    - just "Reliability and Performance Monitor"...

    Per the KB Article:
    To monitor active Web and FTP connections in IIS 6.0
    1. Open Administrative Tools, and then click Performance.

    Here is what the FTP sessions screen looks like that I outlined above.  This will show you all current sessions.
