How to configure IIS to host an FTP site on Windows 7

Go to Control Panel->Programs and Features->Turn Windows features on or off, select FTP Service and IIS Management Console under Internet Information Services and press OK button:

Go to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Internet Information Service (IIS) Manager , right click on Sites and create FTP site with your preferences:

Note that by default FTP will work in ASCII mode, so to enable binary mode you need to type ‘bin’ at the command line in your FTP client. For example, I use the following bash script to upload files to my Windows FTP server:

ftp -inv 2> $ERROR_LOG <<EOF
open $FTP_UPLOAD_SITE
user $FTP_UPLOAD_USER $FTP_UPLOAD_PASSWORD
bin
cd $FTP_UPLOAD_PATH
put $1
close
bye
EOF
