Hello all,

I have a question. I currently installed a web server using windows server 2003 R2. I set up the IIS services and I set my firewall and switches to allow access to the site via a dedicated I.P. All this works and I can access the site via an internet connection.

Currently the content is the default web that comes with the O.S. (the under constuction one).

I do have a web deginer that wants access to the web server so he can upload the site, and is asking me for a ftp connection.

I can install the ftp service easily from the add/remove programs.

Question 1: how do I create an account for the web developer to be able to access the ftp connection without opening it to everyone on the net?

Question 2: I do understand that giving an ftp connection is actually openeing a folder to be used by a user on the server. Which folder do I have to give him so he can upload the site?
