It’s fairly simple to customize the welcome message on your IIS/Windows NT FTP server. Welcome messages can contain directory information, usage guidelines, unauthorized access warnings, server news, and other useful information. First-time FTP users may spend a lot of time floundering around looking for what they need from the server. A good welcome message can help speed their visit and reduce load on the server. To customize your message, right-click on the FTP service icon, view Properties, go to the “Messages” tab, and follow the instructions there.
