Robo-FTP Server is easy but I probably wouldn't call it Enterprisey since you can't administer it remotely; unless your count remote desktop as remote administration.  Also I don't know if it has LDAP, I never tried that.  

Anyway, the cool thing about this server is that you can script automatic events to run when the user does certain actions like logs in, logs out, uploads a file, etc...  We have one set up where if the user uploads a file with a PGP extention the server automatically decrypts the file, moves the decrypted file to a network share, then sends an email to the group that uses these files.  If decryption fails it sends an email to the user that uploaded it.

You can use logins based off Active Directory or local user accounts but you can also just create users without accounts and their account information is just stored in the registry... this type of user can log in with a password or with an SSH public key.  You could also mix and match different types of account authentication.

The 30 day free trial of Robo-FTP Server is really easy to get running in SFTP mode because it can generate its own SSH keys.  Here is how to do it:

1. Download from here: http://www.robo-ftp.com/download/
2. Install the software then run the "Server Console" ... click thru the 30day eval stuff at the beginning.
3. Click the "Install" button to start it as a Windows Service under the default Network Service account
4. Click the "SFTP Server" menu, switch to Server Keys tab, create both keys then click "Apply" button
5. Switch back to "General Settings" tab, choose root folder then click "Start SFTP" button
6. Click the "Users" menu, click "New" button, type user name, select SFTP
7. Click "SFTP Logon Details" and set password and user's home folder then click "OK" then "Apply"
