Default FTP Custom Feature Providers <providers>

Overview

The <providers> element of the <customFeatures> element specifies the default collection of FTP custom feature providers for FTP sites.

Note: The providers that are added to this collection can implement custom logging or home directory lookups; custom FTP providers that implement authentication and role lookups are added to the <ftpServer/security/authentication/customAuthentication> collection.

Note: The custom features that are added to the <customFeatures/providers> element must be registered in the <system.ftpServer/providerDefinitions> collection.

Note: Support for creating custom feature providers was introduced in FTP 7.5. For additional information about how to create FTP custom feature providers, see the Developing for FTP 7.5 topic on Microsoft's IIS.net Web site.

Compatibility

Version Notes
IIS 8.5 The <providers> element was not modified in IIS 8.5.
IIS 8.0 The <providers> element was not modified in IIS 8.0.
IIS 7.5 The <providers> element of the <customFeatures> element ships as a feature of IIS 7.5.
IIS 7.0 The <providers> element of the <customFeatures> element was introduced in FTP 7.0, which was a separate download for IIS 7.0.
IIS 6.0 The FTP service in IIS 6.0 did not support extensibility.

Note: The FTP 7.0 and FTP 7.5 services shipped out-of-band for IIS 7.0, which required downloading and installing the modules from the following URL:

http://www.iis.net/expand/FTP

With Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, the FTP 7.5 service ships as a feature for IIS 7.5, so downloading the FTP service is no longer necessary.

Setup

To support FTP publishing for your Web server, you must install the FTP service. To do so, use the following steps.

Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2

  1. On the taskbar, click Server Manager.
  2. In Server Manager, click the Manage menu, and then click Add Roles and Features.
  3. In the Add Roles and Features wizard, click Next. Select the installation type and click Next. Select the destination server and click Next.
  4. On the Server Roles page, expand Web Server (IIS), and then select FTP Server.

    Note: To support ASP.Membership authentication or IIS Manager authentication for the FTP service, you will need to select FTP Extensibility, in addition to FTP Service.
    .
  5. Click Next, and then on the Select features page, click Next again.
  6. On the Confirm installation selections page, click Install.
  7. On the Results page, click Close.

Windows 8 or Windows 8.1

  1. On the Start screen, move the pointer all the way to the lower left corner, right-click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Programs and Features, and then click Turn Windows features on or off.
  3. Expand Internet Information Services, and then select FTP Server.

    Note: To support ASP.Membership authentication or IIS Manager authentication for the FTP service, you will also need to select FTP Extensibility.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click Close.

Windows Server 2008 R2

  1. On the taskbar, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
  2. In the Server Manager hierarchy pane, expand Roles, and then click Web Server (IIS).
  3. In the Web Server (IIS) pane, scroll to the Role Services section, and then click Add Role Services.
  4. On the Select Role Services page of the Add Role Services Wizard, expand FTP Server.
  5. Select FTP Service.

    Note: To support ASP.Membership authentication or IIS Manager authentication for the FTP service, you will also need to select FTP Extensibility.
  6. Click Next.
  7. On the Confirm Installation Selections page, click Install.
  8. On the Results page, click Close.

Windows 7

  1. On the taskbar, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Programs and Features, and then click Turn Windows Features on or off.
  3. Expand Internet Information Services, and then FTP Server.
  4. Select FTP Service.

    Note: To support ASP.Membership authentication or IIS Manager authentication for the FTP service, you will also need to select FTP Extensibility.
  5. Click OK.

Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista

  1. Download the installation package from the following URL:
  2. Follow the instructions in the following walkthrough to install the FTP service:

How To

At this time there is no user interface that enables you to add custom features to a site. See the Configuration and Sample Code sections of this document for additional information about how to add custom features to an FTP site.

Configuration

Attributes

None.

Child Elements

Element Description
add Optional element.

Adds a feature provider to the default collection of FTP custom providers for FTP sites.
clear Optional element.

Clears the default collection of FTP custom providers for FTP sites.
remove Optional element.

Removes a feature provider from the default collection of FTP custom providers for FTP sites.

Configuration Sample

The following configuration sample displays an example <siteDefaults> element for a server that defines several of the FTP site defaults.

<siteDefaults>
   <logFile logFormat="W3C" directory="%SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles" />
   <traceFailedRequestsLogging enabled="true" directory="%SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\FailedReqLogFiles" />
   <ftpServer serverAutoStart="true">
      <connections controlChannelTimeout="300" />
      <security>
         <commandFiltering>
            <add command="SYST" allowed="false" />
         </commandFiltering>
         <ssl serverCertHash="57686f6120447564652c2049495320526f636b73" controlChannelPolicy="SslAllow" dataChannelPolicy="SslAllow" />
         <sslClientCertificates clientCertificatePolicy="CertIgnore" />
         <authentication>
             <anonymousAuthentication enabled="false" />
             <basicAuthentication enabled="false" />
             <clientCertAuthentication enabled="false" />
             <customAuthentication>
                <providers>
                   <add name="FtpCustomAuthenticationModule" enabled="false" />
                </providers>
             </customAuthentication>
         </authentication>
      </security>
      <messages bannerMessage="Welcome!" allowLocalDetailedErrors="true" />
      <fileHandling keepPartialUploads="false" />
      <firewallSupport externalIp4Address="169.254.10.10" />
      <userIsolation mode="None" />
      <directoryBrowse showFlags="StyleUnix, DisplayAvailableBytes" />
      <logFile period="Daily" enabled="true" />
   </ftpServer>
</siteDefaults>
