    How to start FTP services in XP Pro (XP Pro)

    I need to start the FTP & IIS services on a XP Pro machine. When I went into the services applet, I couldn't find either the FTP or IIS service application amongst all the other services. Are these settings found elsewhere? Or do they need to be installed? Do I need to be logged on as Administrator to do this?

    I thought they were included in XP Pro - as they are included in WIN2K Pro.

    They're not installed by default. You may need to look under Add Windows Components in the Add/Remove Software applet in Control Panel.

    Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs > Add / Remove Windows Components > Internet Information Service (IIS) > Details > File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Service

    Yep - figured that out after about an hour.

    I need this (the FTP service running) because I have files that get sent to this pc via FTP from an AS/400.

    Everthing works fine on my Win2K Pro at my desk.

    Now the issue is whether the IIS user account that was created by installing IIS & FTP has the proper authoritiy to accept the file being sent to it. I went into Local Users/Groups and set the local path for the home folder. My job log on the AS/400 says everything completed normally, but still the file doesn't appear in the folder designated by the local path for the home folder.

    I'm stumped.

    Does IIS log FTP transfers? I've never used the FTP so I have no idea. Perhaps something in the log will help track it down.
