    im not sure with w2k pro edition, but with XP there is IIS build in. (so also ftp) how many max connections do you want to allow?
    this because it is limited (i thought)

              If IIS (including the FTP service) is installed, go to the IIS control panel and check the default FTP site is running.

              Stick some files in the FTP directory and point your client at:

              ftp://computername/ (for LAN clients)

              For FTP over the internet, you'll need to open port 21 on your router / firewall and set DNS to point to your machine

                  Uno momento porfavor!

                  Windows 2000 pro supports IIS but as you all may or may not know it can only support 10 concurrent connections (this also holds true to any share created on any 2000 pro or Xp pro machine).

                  Ok now for the good part...
                  Under "Add or remove programs" goto "Add / Remove Windows Components". Select "Internet Information Services" and click "Details". From there you will see the many services IIS will support. If FTP is all you are looking for then select "Common Files", "File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Service", and "Internet Information Services Snap-In". It's recommended but not necessary to install the "Documentation". If you won't be using any of the other services then there is no need to install them (more services=more memory and more chances of security attacks like "Code Red II"). Now that we have these options selected click "Ok" and "Next" (I hope you figured that much out by now). Windows will install your selected components (how nice).

                  Setting up your FTP:
                  Run the following "%SystemRoot%\System32\inetsrv\iis.msc". Now you will see the Internet Services Manager (IIS Snap-In). Expand your computer name, notice there is a "FTP Sites" Sub directory. Expand the "FTP sites" Now you see "Default FTP Site". I find it's a good idea just to stick with defaults, but just in case, the directory where the FTP points to by default is "%systemdrive%\Inetpub\ftproot\". Now if you right click on your "Default FTP Site" and click properties you will find all sorts of simple goodies that you can change (if needed). Now you are ready to setup users (If you don't want anonymous access all the time). I hope by now you know how to create local users and groups (because I'm not going to explain that). Setup a new user, give 'em a password and BAM! Youíre done (for the most part).

                  NOW!
                  Using NAT on your favorite router/firewall open port "21" to your "local machines IP" example your computer's ip is 192.168.1.50 create a rule that "allows" traffic on port 21 to that ip. If you donít use a firewall or router then (get one) all you need to do is get your IP. I tell my customers to go to http://www.whatismyip.com After you accomplish this task try going to your FTP, ftp://IP_address_goes_here! That should do it! Sorry if my instructions are confusing, let me know if you still need help.

                      already asked how many connections and his answer was:

                      im only need it for downloading some files when im not near my machine so i guess i will need just 1 or 2 sessions at a time.

                      so no problem with max of 10 connections
