I can get to my ftp site using ftp://ip but how do you use a URL...either www. or ftp.? Do I actually have to set up a web site and enable FTP publishing or can I just do it from an FTP site? I only have an FTP site set up now. Thanks for your help!

You need to register a domain name and setup your DNS. Do you have a domain name yet?

Yes, I have a domain set up already. I have the server in DNS, too. Do I set up an alias for the web site in DNS? I tried that, but I'm not sure I'm doing it right.

Create a CNAME record for either www or ftp and point it at "@" (or your ip address).

Thanks for your input. I ended up just creating a website with FTP publishing.

Is this IIS 7 if you added the FTP binding to the site.

Is the server an ftp server? Are you able to access it via a browser or command line ftp?

some troubleinstalling iis7:
1) if i install iis7 from add role the installation install also iis6, and in this case my iis7 turn in iis6, so i can not follow the guides, because different wizard.
2) if i install iis7 from add role without install manage,enmt console of iis6, the wizard of iis7 look like the guides installation of iis7 web site. In this case i install ftp services from web page of iis, and on control panel ftp pubblishing services
are installed, but when i look for it on the features of iis7 the ftp services is not installed.
Thank you for any help

I recommend starting your own thread, because this has nothing to do with the problem I had previously.
