Hi,

I'm trying to install the FTP server of Windows 7. Got in running, but .... I'm not able to login !
Get a message: Access denied.  Nothing to see in the log files ..
What i did:-
a) added the FTP server
b) configured the binding with the IP address;
c) configured basic authentication
d) gave access rights to everybody for the directory ...
e) and turned off the firewall ...

Thanks for the help!

If you don't have a reason to use IIS for ftp, I'd really suggest you try some other ftp server like FileZilla. It's really much easier.

I havent used IIS on Win7 but if it handles permissions the same as it did i other OS it will have a user iusr_pcname which is anonymous and needs access to the files - are you trying to use logged in access or anonymous?

But agreed better ftp servers are available :-)

hi

i used logged in access. i read on technet that  windows 7 home premium does not support an ftp server! that is strange: allowing to install it and denying access is what i call strange practice!
