Install FTP Service for IIS 7 in Window Server 2008


I was about to setup FTP Service in my production server which is Window Server 2008 standard edition (x64). I was not able to find FTP publishing service in fresh installation. I did the following steps to install;

Server Manager -> Roles -> Under Roles Services : you can find FTP Publishing Service -> Select and click Add Roles Service to install the feature.

When i did the above steps, after installation to my surprise i found
FTP 6 got installed!

FTP Services 7:

Then from forums found Microsoft has written New FTP services (FTP Publishing Service 7) for Windows Server 2008 which could be downloaded from the following links:

Download FTP Publishing Service for Windows Server 2008 (x64)

Download FTP Publishing Service for Windows Server 2008 (x86)

Hope it helps...

Did this work for you?
I have installed the FTP7.5 on my SBS2008.

I can create ftp sites,but can"t find the FTP publishing service anywhere.

When you right click on the "server" in IIS. I was not able to see "Add FTP Site" until i install this. More over after installation only i was able to see FTP section in Features view along, IIS & Management.
