How to join a Windows 7 client to a SBS 2008 server

Install the Windows 7 client as you normally do and launch Internet Explorer. In the screenshot you see that you need to enable Intranet Settings. Click the Yellow Bar to see the options. One other thing is that you connect to a file that is named WindowsVista.aspx though you are joining a Windows 7 client. Last year (October 2008) SBS 2008 developers did not know precisely what kind of OS Windows 7 would be and they did not even know that it supposed to be named Windows 7.

How to install FTP 7.5 on a SBS 2008 server

Installing and configuring FTP 7.5 on IIS 7 is completely different compared to the old FTP on IIS 6. There are several ways we can configure a FTP server for User Isolation. Our task is to create FTP access for customers with the login credentials equal to the customers company name and those credentials are not part of our Active Directory.

Using Windows Firewall with secure FTP over SSL (FTPS) traffic

Using Windows Firewall with secure FTP over SSL (FTPS) traffic

Now that we have successfully configured our FTP server for secure FTP over SSL (FTPS) we need to configure our Windows Firewall because the default settings do not allow traffic. Normally you would open port 21 for FTP traffic but because we configured our server for Secure FTP there are more steps involved. The stateful FTP packet inspection in Windows Firewall will most likely prevent SSL from working because Windows Firewall filter for stateful FTP inspection will not be able to parse the encrypted traffic that would establish the data connection.
