FTP Server On SBS 2011

We need to setup a FTP server on SBS 2011 for a Konica Minolta multifunction to scan to it.  For some reason, the model (BizHub 350) doesn't want to communicate with it via SMB.  What is the best way to setup an FTP server in SBS 2011?  Can I do it with software already on it or do I need to use a 3rd party?

You could use the built-in IIS server for free.

Here is a commercial one that is super easy to set up... just install and create a user account: http://www.robo-ftp.com/help/robo-ftp_server/3.3/ftp_quick_start_guide.htm

How do you setup the internal iis ftp server?

This KM bizhub is older and after verifying all settings and credentials it still does not work.  We are not worried about security as much  as getting it to work.
I know of any SBS 2011 specific documentation for configuring an FTP server, as it is not recomended, but the following outlines how to do so with IIS 7.0:
http://www.iis.net/learn/publish/using-the-ftp-service/creating-a-new-ftp-site-in-iis-7

Make sure you have a full system backup as many have destroyed all SBS web functions trying to do so.  Getting the firewall ports configured is often a big part of the problem, and many FTP clients don't seem to work properly with the IIS FTP.

The following is an article as to how to install Filezilla on SBS 2011 by one of the leading SBS MVP's, which would be my recommendation.
