i am trying to setup an ftp server. i found a video on youtube that explained exactly how to do it. the thing is i am seeing something different on my computer. when i go to administrative tools i see iis manager and also iis 6.0 manager.

the youtube video said to go to iis manager and setup a new ftp site within the iis manager. however on my pc it wont allow me to do it from the iis manager. it says

ftp management is provided by the internet information services (iis) 6.0 manager. click here to launch.

so when i go to iis6 i do not see no where near as many settings as the video did when they set it up in iis manager.

long story short if i test out what i did in iis 6.0 and try to access the ftp. i get the prompt for username and password i am just not sure what username to use. i tried the username and password on the pc that the ftp is created on but that didnt work. any ftp setup advice would be greatly appreciated

Have you gone into the section where you have highlighted for IIS to be installed from. There should be a details section of some sort that you can click on there. And from there enable the FTP add in for IIS to get that set up for you. It is a part of IIS that does not normally get installed in unless you specify it to be installed in.

setting up an FTP server on your home computer is like locking your door and hanging your key next to the door with a big sign saying "come on on!"

Don't setup and ftp server.
