Both Server 2003 and 2008 come with IIS FTP 6.0. Enable FXP in IIS6 - MS Article 247132

@uSlackr, that isn't a typo. FXP is the File eXchange Protocol extension to FTP. – Chris S Oct 7 '11 at 20:58
My bad. Sorry about that – uSlackr Oct 7 '11 at 21:06

I believe the answer can be found here:

This article doesn't cover server 2008, but I would guess things function similarly.

Server 2008 actually comes with IIS FTP 6.0, so those directions do cover it. – Chris S Oct 7 '11 at 20:55
windows server 2008 run FTP 6, so this article cover that – mehman Oct 7 '11 at 20:55
