IIS FTP and IIS Manager Users-Week 45

You can find this week’s video here.

IIS FTP supports a new type of user called IIS Manager Users. This type of user can be used instead of Windows Local or Active Directory Users.

They are useful if you want to manage a number of FTP users but don’t want to use Windows Local Users or you want to keep IIS FTP separate from the operating system users. They are also compatible with Shared Configuration so you can create the users once and they will work on all servers in a web farm.

To properly manage IIS Manager users with IIS FTP, there are a few things to consider for security and configuration. This week I cover everything you need to know to properly support IIS Manager Users with IIS FTP. This is week 45 of a 52 week series, and the 2nd of a 4 week mini-series on IIS FTP.

Also, if you’re reading this early enough, I’m taking questions for the last couple weeks of the series.  Read more about it here.
