I would like to setup an FTP Server on our Internal network.  I would like to use our Web-Filter appliance to export logs to an FTP Server.  The FTP Server will be on the same IP Subnet as the Web Filter.

The idea is that the Web Filter will export the logs to the FTP Server.   Then the Web appliance will email the logs to a specific email account.  I just need to setup an FTP Server.

I do have an existing Windows 2003 Server SP2, that already has Internet Information Server already installed/configured on it.  Should I just use that server (with IISalready installed) as the FTP server?  AS you can see I have never setup an FTP Server before.

What can I do to setup and FTP server and allow users to be able to access the FTP server?
