Hi Guys

Simple Q.

I have IIS 7.5 up and running I have created a ftp site and allowed read access for anonoymous and read and write for administrator.

when I enter the public ip address

ftp://public ip

It does not prompt me for the username and password.

Have I missed something out?#

Is there a comphresensive guide to get this working as I am new to IIS.

Its not prompting because Anonymous has read access.  Unless you specify that you are coming in with credentials through something like an FTP client, it will just automatically assume you are anonymous and give you that access.

Try using something like FileZilla with the admin credentials and see if you can get it.

I ended up using FileZilla Server instead.

IIS is a pile of crap
