Whoa, you want too make an XP HE machine an FTP server? Ummmm,.....Damn.
Search Google for Bullet Proof FTP client, it should come with a trial edition of the server too. You may want too go too a Minister and get some Holy Water.

gore I'm running an XP machine as a ftp server without problems (so far)
am using Filezilla server and DirectUpdate to take care of the updating of my DynDNS (on adsl so IP tends to change every now & again if i disconnect for too long)
http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/ <- filezilla
http://www.dyndns.org/comtransition/ <- incase you dont have a static ip addy

I use Cerberus and have used it for about 2-3 weeks without reboot... very good, free, and easy control and setup...
And I don't see anything wrong with running an FTP server off Windows.... since I run one probably. =P

use it for my personal ftp server...VERY small
but you have to edit the config file by hand....which is sometimes better
and it is really easy to use
download, unpack, run the service tool, edit the config file, and either reboot or start the server
il give you an example of the section where you as a user to help you out
mount C:\ftp /
allow / read list
deny / write
work it harder, make it better, do it faster, makes us stronger

If you are worried about someone trying to come into the FTP site, and you probably should be, you could always set your firewall to port forward another port on the outside to port 21 on the inside. Its not the best solution but every little bit helps

Gore: You surprise me..... Properly configured, secured and patched and you can run any public service you like on XP.
Don\'t SYN us.... We\'ll SYN you.....

Thanks gore. I was looking for something like DynDNS. Never came across it before though. On and ADSL myself, and the IP is forced to change every 20 or so hours. This should do perfectly cos i want to host my website off my own PC =) (not my everyday use PC, but a box that I want to use for this specifially. w00t apache!)
I blame you cos my mind is not my own, so don't blame me if I trespass in your zone!
