used to create an FTP site on your computer. It's a

we will give you guides for setting up both. If you are using XP Home
you will need to use third-party software. There is no way to publish an
FTP site with the Home Edition of
The first step is to check that IIS (Internet
Information Services, Microsoft's web-server application) is configured
Go to start\'control
panel'\'add/remove programs'\ choose the 'add/remove windows components' button from
the bar on the left. Highlight the item 'Internet information services (IIS)' If
it is unchecked, check it, then click 'details.'
The components you will need
