is not installed by default.

 8.        -click OK.
 9.         -insert your Microsoft Windows XP CD

              (you will only see this entry, if you
               installed it, using the Windows XP CD)
     7.       -a default FTP Site will have been added
     8.        -right-click 'Default FTP Site'

                  -IP address (e.g. 192.168.1.28 if on local network
                   or VMWare)
                  -put in the local path to your share

Trouble shooting:
What if you get an error 'Connection closed by remote host?'
1. Check first if you can ping the remote computer
    ping <IP address of the remote computer>
   you should get a 'reply' message.
   If you can not ping:
   -check the physical connection,
   -and if on local network, make sure your IP address are
    in the same range (e.g. both have IP address 192.168.1.xxx)
   -further possibly restart computers (or your operating
    system in VMWare)
   -further make sure the TCP/IP protocol is installed
2. Check if the ftp server software is running
   on that computer (see steps above)
3. Check if the IP address assigned to that ftp server
   is the *same* as the IP address of the computer on
   which it is installed.
   For example
   1. your Windows XP ftp server software is installed on
      a computer with IP address 192.168.1.28.
   2. You can check this by typing:
       IPCONFIG
      on the command line of an MSDOS box.
   3. Then check if the IP address assigned to your ftp server
      is currently exactly the same:
       1. -click Windows button 'Start'
       2.  -select from list 'Control Panel'
       3.   -double click on icon 'Administrative Tools'
       4.    -select from list 'Services and applications'
       5.     -select from list 'Internet Information Services'
       6.      -select from list 'FTP Sites'
       7.       -a default FTP Site will have been added
       8.        -right-click 'Default FTP Site'
       9.         -select from list 'Properties'
      10.          -in the box 'IP address' you should also see
                    that IP address (e.g. 192.168.1.28).
                    If not change it to be the same.
                    When finished click the 'OK' button.
4. If using VMWare, check if the correct (physical) network card has 
been
   chosen (menu 'Edit'->
            'Virtual network settings'->
              'Host virtual network mapping'
                then check if 'VMNet 0' is mapped to this network card.
                 If not, change it by choosing from the list.
