    Hey,
    I am trying to create an FTP site for my business so that I can securely share estimations and other documents with others. I did a little bit of research (I'm not much of a computer person) and decided that creating an FTP site would be the best option. I am on Windows 10, and I made sure to turn anything IIS-related on that the Internet told me to. I set the site up on port number 21, and also made sure that port 21 was open on our router.
    The problem that I am having is that when I get everything set up, I type the appropriate address into the search bar, I get a login, despite me not setting up any login credentials. I've tried changing authentication from basic to anonymous, but I just don't know what to do. I don't really use any third-party software like filezilla, either. There was a point where I thought I managed to set up credentials, however when I went to sign in to the ftp site, the sign-in box disappeared like it was working, the website flashed, and then the box reappeared. When I compare this to a working ftp site, the box disappears, and then the information is present.
    Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Even though I may have said I set things up, that doesn't necessarily mean I did correctly. If, at all possible, pictures/screenshots could be incorporated with any answers, it would help immensely. Finally, I have attempted to visit several websites already that haven't really helped the issue, so a link to a blog post is likely something that won't help and/or I have already seen. Thanks!

    Does your ISP allow you to host a server?

    Yes, our ISP, Windstream, allows us to host servers
