How to secure an FTP (BulletProf) server and allow access it with AD credentials

Hi,

I am just wondering If someone could advise about the following.

We have an external FTP server (BulletProf - http://www.bpftp.com/). The current workflow has changed and the FTP access is going to growth and the server will need to be accessible by a large number of our company users.

All these users have account on AD. We would like this users to have access to the FTP server with their AD credentials.  We were wondering if someone could provide some advise on how we could perform this setup.

We were thinking on using ADAM on the same FTP server (DMZ) and synchronize only the users that need access to the FTP and then secure the FTP with a certificate (SFTP) however we are not sure how we should acomplish that or if there is a better or easier but secure way to do it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Just after a few quick digs into the Wiki provided by them, I can tell you that the BulletProof FTP server is not going to be able to do what you want in its current version. The really big thing is that it is not capable of using SFTP through SSL. Second, it's not designed to integrate with Active Directory at all. User management is entirely limited to its own internal methods (See http://wiki.builtbp.com/index.php/Server_User_Setup ). If you want AD integration and SSL security you're not going to get it with that product. IIS6 has a fairly good FTP server included in it (which comes with all versions of Windows 2003 and even Windows XP). Instructions for setting that up are here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/31c2427c-c0a5-49fa-9e03-823f34fba3e8.mspx?mfr=true and detailed management info is here:

IIS7 is included with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. Here's some info on setting that up: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771012%28WS.10%29.aspx
