Thank you for the insight, I am testing it out. Since the XP comp I was practicing on now is in use by an employee.
So I am testing it on a Vista. When to the Windows features on or off and installed the FTP Server only.
Went to the firewall and opened ports 20 & 21. When I try to connect ftp through terminal:
it sits around for awhile then says that the system has timed out. Tried this with FileZilla and same response.
Currently trying to install the other FTP option "FTP Management Console" see if that helps....
It's basically I would like to get a specific file off every computer and run it through a nifty software on the server to extract the info. I would use Samba, but I wouldn't be able to access the proper folder (because it's not being shared). That and it wont let me connect to other shares just its own?
