Update FTP 7.5 for IIS 7.0 in Vista SP2 And Windows Server 2008 SP2

An FTP 7.5 update is currently available to customers running Internet Information Services 7.0, designed to resolve issues in which the directory listing for sites with over 50 virtual directories function incorrectly. Microsoft is offering two refreshes, tailored to the flavors of FTP 7.5 for IIS 7.0 supported by the company. Both updates are currently offered to customers free of charge through the Microsoft Download Center.

“Consider the following scenario: you are running FTP 7.5 in Internet Information Service (IIS) 7.0.You create an FTP 7.5 site. You create more than 50 virtual directories under the FTP 7.5 site. You log on to the FTP 7.5 site. In this scenario, the FTP 7.5 site directory listing does not function correctly,” Microsoft stated.

The updates offered by Microsoft are designed specifically for Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows Server 2008 SP2. Of course, both operating systems need to first have FTP 7.5 installed on top of the two operating systems mentioned above. The software giant included FTP 7.5 by default on both Windows 7 and in Windows 2008 R2, but offers IIS 7.0 and FTP 7.5 separately for Vista and Windows Server 2008. According to the Redmond company, customers running FTP 7.5 for IIS 7.0 on top of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are not affected by this issue.

FTP 7.5 for IIS 7.0 in Vista SP2 “provides a robust, secure solution for FTP in a Windows environment. This new FTP service was written specifically for Windows Server 2008 and enables Web authors to publish content more easily and securely than before, and offers both Web administrators and hosters better integration, management, authentication and logging features,” Microsoft revealed.
