Well I’m not entirely sure how I managed miss this one? Perhaps it was through a haze of Windows Server 2008 R2 release excitement, but I recently discovered that Microsoft have a patch available for Windows Server 2008 to upgrade the existing FTP 7 to FTP 7.5, the version found in the R2 release of Server 2008.
This is good news for users of Server 2008 because it adds support for the biggest feature on FTP for years gone by Ã¢â‚¬â€œ FTP over SSL (FTPS). This means that your previously plain-text unencrypted FTP transmissions can now be protected by the same certificates and public keying process and your online banking transactions.
You can get the download from the Microsoft Download Center in both 32-bi and 64-bit versions:
