FTP LOGIN

How do I set up my FTP server so that a user accessing it via a web browser has to login before they access the root directory. I am using IIS with NT 4.0.

If you utilize FTP you may want to consider modifying the following options from the MMC:

Setting User Connections:
To conserve bandwidth for others connecting to your site you might want to reduce the number of simultaneous connections that can be made. To set user connections follow these steps:

1. Start, Programs, Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack, Microsoft Internet Information Server Manager
2. Expand the Internet Information Server folder
3. Expand the FTP Server that you want to modify
4. Right click on your web site
5. Click Properties
6. On the FTP site tab click the "Limited To" option
7. Enter a value in the Connection field
In the Connection Timeout field you may select a different setting for how long an idle connection should remain open before disconnecting.
8. Click OK


Setting User Login Requirements:
You can allow clients to access your FTP server based on a number of different authentication requirements
*. If you want to allow all users access to your server then you must allow anonymous connections. Users can then log into your site with the user name: anonymous and a password of their e-mail address.


You can modify these settings on the Properties sheet, Security Account tab. Follow the above steps to get to this sheet.


*Note, that passwords are passed in clear text if you utilize userids other than anonymous.
