JSI Tip 6154. How do I secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP) directories by using options in the Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000 Management console?

Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 310110 contains the following summary:

This article describes how to secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP) directories by using options in the Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000 Management console. FTP authentication options are limited to Anonymous and Basic Authentication. Basic Authentication may pose a security risk because it permits username and password information to pass over the network in clear text. Anonymous authentication does not expose username and password information, but it does not permit you to control who can access directories on an FTP server.

ISA Server 2000 solves this problem by allowing you to use a combination of Web publishing rules and other authentication options on the Incoming Web Requests Listener.
