  • Setup external users for FTP access

    Hi all,

    I have set my 2000 server up as an ftp server, with authentication, and it works well. The problem i have is that people from external organisations need access to my ftp to download architectural drawings. However, i dont want to give them a domain username and password, because AD gets messy then. Is there anyway i can setup additional users specifically for ftp access???

    Well yes you can create local user accounts on your FTP server.

    What worries me the most is the fact that you're putting a Member Server into your DMZ !! Not wise !

    An external facing FTP server should be placed in your DMZ and be a stand-alone server. All user accounts are handled locally, and with no need for internal access to your infrastructure.
