    Hi there,

    Did you set the site to allow anonymous connections and then set a username and password for them to use?

    I did this over a year ago when I was still using XP. I used Filezilla. Its open source and worked for me. There are some easy to follow tutorials as well:

    Obviously you also need to enable port forwarding if you want to access your FTP site outside your LAN.

    Oooh and I cant remember if I exceeded to required post count to post links ...hmmm!

    Hope this works for you
