FTP Authentication with a Clear Text Password RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1095652500 posted
    Hello I was messing around with IIS FTP, and I can't seem to find a way to start an FTP site and have the password NOT sent in clear text. Maybe i'm just missing something. To me though it seems it would be very dangerous to send that password in clear text; does anybody know another way? i don't think ftps:// exists like https:// does it??? Thankyou Ryan

    Not with IIS FTP, to secure IIS FTP, you can try secure the connection via VPN or etc. Refer this kb - Information About the IIS File Transmission Protocol (FTP) Service http://support.microsoft.com/?id=283679

    If you refer the previous kb I mentioned, you will notice at the bottom section of that article talks about detail no securing network connections.

    Does anybody know any good links for WebDAV installation? I've managed to create a virtual directory named WebDAV, and I also enabled it in web service extensions. How do I connect to it? Thankyou ryan

    Great, i'm losing my faith windows. I just went through the whole thing on setting up Remote Access, i followed the instructions and couldn't get it to work. Anyway, now I've disabled it and guess what. Nothing works. IIS doesn't, I can't see computers in Network Neighborhood anymore, this is ridiculous. I just basically undid everything and now boom nothing works. beautiful.

    I don't think remote access is involve ? or is it ? I'm not much of a webdav guy, but you can try - Open IIS MMC, F1 and look at web dav publishing. This kb is useful as well - HOW TO: Create a Secure WebDAV Publishing Directory http://support.microsoft.com/?id=323470
