hi ranchers,
I need to access FTP server on my machine and want to use coommons API so as to access the same. Is there any preinstalled FTP server avalable with windows ? if it is, are there any configuration settings needs to be done so as to access the same.or do I need to install the FTP server on the windows box which is from third party ? if that is so ...from where I can get one ... Any white paper ,link will will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I have been happy with the FileZilla server - configuration and user management has been easy. Note that any FTP server exposed to the net will get probed almost instantly so make sure your configuration is right before opening the ports used on your firewall/router.

Do a google search for the download site. Note there is both a client and a Server FileZilla.

You can install IIS on Windows 2000 and above if you have the Windows CD. IIS contains several servers, including at least a web server, FTP server and mail server.

Although I too would prefer a third party server like FileZilla, because the configuration (especially of users) is quite terrible in IIS.
