Re: How to configure FTP server in windows xp prof ?
Setting up an FTP site
Using Windows XP Professional
Windows XP professional (as well as Windows 2000) includes Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Server) which can be
used to create an FTP site on your computer. It's a
fair bit less complicated and less flexible than using some third-party FTP server software packages, so
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
are: 'common files,' 'file transfer protocol (FTP) service' and 'internet
information services snap-in.' Uncheck any others then click next. IIS will
configure itself, and you may be prompted for the XP CD.

Here is a link to an excellent tutorial that will guide you through the process of updating drivers in XP.
It has instructions for opening the Device Manager and finding out what hardware is installed in your system. Then you need to go online from another computer, download the appropriate drivers and burn them to cd, load this cd in your computer, then update the drivers on your system from the cd. You can drag the setup files to your desktop and install them from there.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment and rate this post....thanks!
Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.
Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.
Whats the operating system of your server?
Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.
I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.
On an XP client you can only have one person logged at a time. This is different on M$ Sever 2000 and up where you can have multiple log ons. There no way to do this this with M$ RD - However you can achive what you are after by using third party RD software such as Real VNC There is a free client (which i use to access mac's & win machines) or if you prefer ssh etc it is quite cheap for the full version.
