IIS7 – post #58 – FTP 7.0 information

I was recently helping in the forums regarding the FTP 7.0 publishing service.  Here is the post. http://forums.iis.net/t/1147315.aspx   The FTP 7.0 publishing service is one of the real gems available in IIS 7.0.  It is an ‘out of band’ release to replace the IIS 6 FTP service (actually this service has been around awhile, IIS 3.0 maybe!)  Anyway, there is a lot of great information posted on IIS.net.  I was able reproduce and resolve an 534 TLS error that had been posted.  The thread covers what I did to work around it.  In my research, I found some great articles that cover installation, troubleshooting, how to setup ‘FTP’ host-headered sites.  I listed below three clients I tested that were able to connect to IIS 7.0 while SSL was enabled.  Talk about a straight forward, secure solution!
