Lots of reasons why I like this post!
1) I like the content I am delivering in this one. Short, Sweet, to the point. This is the kind of stuff I want to do!
2) How many people even know when have a Secure FTP server service in Windows now?
3) This is my first SilverLight embedded post! I have been chomping at the bits to do some of these and just have not taken the time. Over the past 2 days I have been working off of a document that my buddy Keith Combs put together for our team that was tremendously helpful in getting me going.
4) This is going to push me to leverage my new Quad Core/8 Gig of RAM boxes. Rendering videos down has always been painful and these two boxes should alleviate a lot of the time wasted watching progress bars crawl across the screen.
Now for the real post content. As noted above, not too many people even know that we have a Secure FTP service for Windows now. We haven’t exactly gone out of our way to let the world know, so I want to do my part. As usual, I am using my home servers so you won’t see all the Contoso stuff for the demos.
An excellent source of information on the new FTP services and EVERYTHING IIS related is at the IIS.net web site.
