How do I install the FTP server service?

A. In prior version of NT, the FTP server service was installed as part of TCP/IP, however as of NT 4.0, it became part of IIS/PWS, so it needs to be installed manually. Before you install the FTP server, TCP/IP must be installed.

  1. In Control Panel, double-click Network.
  2. Click Services, click Add, and then click Microsoft Peer Web Services if you are using NT Workstation or click Microsoft Internet Information Server 2.0 if you are using NT Server.
  3. Click OK, and then type the path for the Windows NT source files. For example, if you are using the Windows NT CD-ROM in drive E, type the following line: E:\i386
  4. Click OK to start the Microsoft Peer Web Services Setup or Internet Information Server.
  5. The FTP Service is selected by default, but you should clear the check boxes for options you do not want to install.
