Hi Experts

I need to configure my FTP server(windows 2008 r2) in such way that when i browse for site it should open the site without asking credentials, Just Like ftp://ftp.microsoft.com .

Right now its asking username and password.

I have configured FTP over windows 2008 r2 server.

Thank you

ftp.microsoft com does use authentication it is anonymous authentication
username is anonymous
password is an email address

this is automatically sent via your browser. If you use an FTP client you will see this.AuthorizationAuthenticaiton

now how can I enable Web DAV for FTP site? Page says it does not encrypt the username password use WebDAV instead.

Is Web DAV a security feature to FTP site which is once enabled then it will encrypt the credentials.

Thanks in advance
