Anyone Have an FTP Server Running on Win 7?

Post by BobH »

I want to allow my BIL to use an FTP client to download files from a specific directory and file path. I've about given up on finding a reasonably priced router that will do this without and FTP Server. Following instructions from this page.

IIS manager shows me that I have the server set up, but before I turn it on I want to be confident that I have my security settings in place to prevent unwanted access.

Has anyone here done this on a home system? If so, can you point me to decent articles on securing the setup properly? The ones I've read so far don't really go into the why's and how's of the appropriate options. I know where the settings are established and have been through them several times but have no confidence that I got it right.
