SOURCECAKE : Setup Secure FTP in IIS7

Requirements: Windows Server 2008 (Code Name “Longhorn”) Release Candidate 0 (RC0) or later
  1. Uninstall the existing FTP server (IIS6) from the server  if previously installed.

    1. Open the Windows Control Panel.
    2. Double-click Programs and Features.
    3. Click Turn Windows features on and off.
    4. Expand the Roles node in the tree.
    5. Select the Web Server (IIS) role.
    6. Click Remove Role Services in the Role Services section at the bottom of the page.
    7. Select the FTP Publishing Service option.
    8. Click the Remove button.
  2. Download Microsoft FTP Publishing Service (currently FTP 7.5)
  3. Run the installation wizard (this will cost you a web service shutdown).
Once the service is installed proceed by opening the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
The 1st thing you’ll notice is that there is no FTP FOLDER under the server name.
Instead you will want to select the site you wish to work with and click “add FTP Publishing…” under the Actions menu.
The rest is very straight forward as the configuration wizard asks for the IP Binding and the SSL cert to be used.  You can also choose SSL enforcement.
Next, set the Authentication and the Authorization options to finish the setup.
Once FTP Publishing is provisioned Internet Information Services Manager will display more options for that FTP instance.
