How can I setup a hidden server with username and pass which does not reside in the system tray or isnt shown as a process?

No I am not talking about viruses like NetBus :)

I need to know because I always set-up a server on my PC so I can access my files from other places but my brother always messes with the FTP and its p!$$!ng me off :mad:

Can anyone help?

The only thing you could do is pop in your XP cd, goto install additional windows components, and you will find the components for FTP, and IIS and such. then you can use the FTP service to run a FTP server in the background at all times, but ya gotta use the command line to set it up so it's kind of a pain.

You do not have to use command line to set up ftp in IIS. You can do it all from the mmc plugin.

Other thing you could try is create a new user account with a password only you know, start the srever running under that account, then Switch users back to the normal account which I assume you share with your brother. The server will still be running under the new accuont but not visible in the normal one.

Good point. I forgot about that, I usually don't use the mmc plugins when settings up stuff like ftp and performance counters cause it just seems not as full featured. If not for the fact that there were still some uses for the command line in windows all those windows "advanced" books they have for sale would be worthless heheh

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
