Alternatively, if you can wait a few weeks, then Windows Server 2008/IIS 7.0 supports FTPS

IIS 6, which comes with Windows Server 2003, is quite secure out of the
box. Most of the evil holes that were present in IIS 5 and earlier have
been patched. If you're forced to use IIS 5 or lower, I agree with all
the other comments. Use something else.
When you select to install IIS, the minimum components needed for static
HTML pages are already selected. For FTP, just deselect the web
components and install the minimal FTP components.
I would suggest using local GUEST accounts for authentication. I would
also suggest placing the FTP root on a separate partition with no other
files. Do not place the FTP root on the system partition.
Do a Google search on "windows ftp security" for articles on setting up
Windows 2003 FTP.

I'm preparing to build a new FTP server using IIS (or an IIS server
sure). Anyway, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some goodsources on how to lock
it down. I need to configure it for an FTP site that anyone can getto and one that is
password protected. Thanks in advance!
