A server running IIS can host multiple FTP sites. Each site runs on a virtual server, and each FTP site has a descriptive name.

You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to perform the following procedure or procedures. As a security best practice, log on to your computer by using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the runas command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. At a command prompt, type runas /User:Administrative_AccountName "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".


To name an FTP site

  1. In IIS Manager, expand the FTP Sites folder, right-click the FTP site you want to name, and click Properties.

  2. On the FTP Site tab, in the Description box, type a descriptive name for the site.

  3. Click OK.
