Creating a Microsoft FTP 7.5 Server for IIS 7.0
This application note illustrates how to create a Microsoft 7.5 FTP Server on a Microsoft 2008 Standard
Server. FTP, File Transfer Protocol, is an application layer protocol that sends the data from one host to
another via the Internet. An FTP server is a requirement for Kofax Front Office (KFS) 4.0 supported
Xerox and Konica MFPs to accept scanned images from KFS. There are complementary guides to the
KFS 4.0 Administrator’s Guide for both the Xerox and Konica MFPs. Please follow the links below for
more details.
• Kofax Front Office Server 4.0.0 Administrator’s Guide for Xerox MFPs

• Kofax Front Office Server 4.0.0 Administrator’s Guide for Konica Minolta MFPs

This application note covers the following topics.
• Enabling Microsoft IIS 7.0 on a Windows 2008 Server

• Installing Microsoft FTP Service 7.5 for IIS 7.0

• Configuring an FTP Site

Enabling Microsoft IIS 7.0 on a Windows 2008 Server
IIS is not enabled by default when the Windows operating system is installed. IIS is enabled and
configured using the IIS Manager. The IIS Manager is accessed through the Microsoft Management
Console or Administrative Tools in the Control Panel.
