FTP Software with Expiring Passwords

Hello Experts -

Just looking for a little advice.  Is there free/open source FTP server software out there that includes expiring or rotating passwords as a feature?  I'm currently using FileZilla but I don't think it includes that functionality.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

You can always  create domain user accounts, just put them in a special group that is for FTP only.

I'm trying to find one that has its own user/password data base and supports expiring password, but can't seem to find any yet.

What OS?

Some FTP servers can make use of the OS's security system so if the OS supports expiring passwords, the FTP server would do so by default.

AFAIK FileZilla Server is windoze only.
What's wrong with using the windoze ftp server, local or domain users can have their passwords expire via group policy.

It's Windows Server 2008.

FileZilla is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X Operating Systems.  I realize Windows provides a build-in FTP server; however, user administration through Local Users and Computers and Group Policy is not as streamlined as using a third-party solution.

Using the MS provided FTP can use domain user-id's, they don't have to be local users/computers.

All of the FTP servers I know for windows that "provide" expiring passwords, use either AD or Windows local user-ids as the security data base, so you would still need to maintain user-id and password that way.

Does the solution need to be free? Or are you willing to pay for a FTP server?

The people connecting to the FTP servers are business partners so they don't have domain user accounts.  I was looking for a free one but if I can find a reasonably priced pay solution, that would work too.

Thanks for all your input.
