Uploading Files to FTP Servers

Allowing other users to upload files to your FTP server needs some extra security settings. So let's re-visit the IIS FTP Server settings:
1. Run IIS, and open the Default FTP Site properties dialog box.
2. Visit the Security Accounts and Home Directory tabs, and making the following changes:
* Allow Anonymous Connections: unchecked - To stop other users accessing your FTP server anonymously. The server can only be accessed now by admin users registered on your machine.
* FTP Site Directory Write: checked - To allow other users to upload files.

To upload files, run the FTP client in a command window:

>ftp localhost
