I set one up using Windows 2000 Pro - using the built in Win2K ftp server.

The set-up is fairly simple in this case and you can use IE to connect.

Here's a link to Win2K's ftp set-up:

If you don't have 2000 Pro or XP Pro, you will need separate ftp server software.

I am not sure who is best, but I've seen Cute FTP around.....

Just installed the Serv-U ftp server.

This was considerably easier than the built in Win2k Pro FTP server.

Worked perfect the first time.

Connected using IE 6.

Thanks for the info, just-

Larry, try this one if you want, it is simple and easy to set-up. Thank you just-

BTW, I looked for coreftp server, and it says a beta will be available soon, but nothing right now.
