Updated IIS FTP Service Extensibility References


It's hard to believe that it has already been six years since I wrote my Extensibility Updates in the FTP 8.0 Service blog, and it has been nine years since I wrote my FTP 7.5 Service Extensibility References blog. (Wow… where has all that time gone?) In any event, those blogs introduced several of the APIs that were added to the IIS FTP service which allow developers to provide custom pre-processing and post-processing functionality. (For example, automatically unzipping a compressed file after it has been uploaded, or implementing anti-leeching functionality.)

That being said, for some reason the managed-code APIs that were introduced in later versions of IIS were never fully documented, but we have rectified that problem. With that in mind, the links listed below will take you to the appropriate article for each API.

And as always, there are a dozen or so articles in the Developing for FTP section of the official IIS documentation that will walk you through the process of creating your own custom FTP functionality for IIS.

I hope this helps!
