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

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.

Configuring IMAP over SSL with SBS 2003 Standard

Because of the release of the iPhone, there has been an increase in interest in configuring IMAP and POP3 services on SBS servers. Providing access to e-mail via IMAP is better than POP3. The approach of IMAP more closely emulates how Exchange provides e-mail services in that messages are maintained on the server, and the IMAP client only pulls down what is needed.
