    Hi,
    I am writing a website selling e-books.
    I want to have an ftp server on my windows server so that when a customer
    purchases a download, I can set them up with a username and password to
    download the single file using ftp.
    Any ideas on an ftp server I could use for this which would allow me to use
    com to set up users from asp?
    Thanks
    JJ

    Why would you use FTP for this? If the person is already at your site, it
    seems like it would make things much simpler for both you and the end user
    if you just allowed the person to download with via HTTP.

    Just a suggestion.
    Place the books into a database as binary.
    Then control the download dynamically with a file header for the file type..
    This will keep you from placing any actual files on a server.
