My goal is to allow our clients to upload large files to our network.
I am trying to setup MS FTP server on one of our machines. Is there
any way I can map a drive (or something else) from IIS to FTP server?
Do I have to write any program/script? I have some familiarity with
I don't want clients to use FTP as the ports are blocked.
IIS is a server, not a protocol. And there's nothing in your question
that seems to actually be specific to C#.
As far as the specific question: most FTP clients support using a
specific port rather than the default, and if you don't already have an
HTTP server on port 80, you could just run your FTP server on port 80.
Alternatively, you could just allow file uploads over HTTP. There are a
number of choices here, which you can learn more about with Google.
Here's the first hit I got:
If you still think there's something C#-specific about your question, I
recommend you ask the friend that suggested C# to explain to you why
they suggested C#. What is it about C# that they believe directly
addresses your question? Is it that you can write ASP.NET applications
using C#? If so, you will probably want to ask your question in the
ASP.NET-specific newsgroup (where you'll still in any case want to be
more specific than you have here).
