    In add/remove programs, click on windows components and install the ftp server.

    Or, my preference would be to download and install FileZilla.

    You'll need to add an exception to windows firewall.

    Hi E34. I've used Filezilla. It works just fine.
    Another much better one is Serv-U, however this is a lot more difficult to set up and it's not free. You can find it here.
