What is a Microsoft FTP Server?

Many IT infrastructures include one or more FTP servers from where users may download static content such as registration forms, product documentations, etc. Similarly, users may upload any document/file to the FTP server for sharing content across a wide area. Microsoft Windows offers several ways for connecting to an FTP server, allowing you to download and upload files in a pinch. The Windows file manager–known as File Explorer on Windows 10 and 8, and Windows Explorer on Windows 7–allows you to connect to FTP servers.

Why Monitor Microsoft FTP Server?

If the FTP servers in an environment play repository to critical information, then users are bound to be intolerant towards brief or prolonged delays in uploading data to or downloading data from the server. To ensure that users are always assured of swift FTP access, the FTP server’s performance should be periodically monitored. This is where eG Enterprise helps administrators.
