    Post FTP access in Windows Server 2008

    Hi Guys,

    I have a Windows Server 2008 R2. I use it for storing some data in database.

    I have a program that uploads some files to a server and another program that downloads files. This happens in another server which is Linux. Now I want to user Windows Server as a backup.

    I want to configure Windows Server 2008 for

    - uploading files
    - downloading files

    Basically 2 user id should be created.
    1) user can upload & download
    2) user has access to download only

    Actually my one program will be doing the uploading and another downloading. Downloading program can be used by more than 1 person.

    Uploading and downloading will be done from an external system. (Any pc on internet)

    Can you tell me how to configure Windows Server so that I can set a folder where data can be uploaded and downloaded. Please note that one user should have both powers and one only download.

    Thank you,

    Cheers,
    Greatchap

    The standard method on Windows Server is to install IIS and then setup FTP, but I think that's overkill for your requirements. I'd use one of the free FTP server programs, like Filezilla Server or WARFTP and set up a local folder on the server for use.

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks paul for your help.

    Basically uploading and download will be done by a .net program. So will filezilla server support this.

    FileZilla Server is a standard FTP server so any standard FTP client will work. I assume your program uses standard FTP requests so it'll be fine.

    cheers, Paul
