The SuppressDefaultFTPBanner property suppresses the banner that is displayed when FTP clients connect to your FTP server.
The FTP service always sends a "220 Microsoft FTP Service" banner when clients connect. Many customers have asked for a way to disable this, as other FTP servers do.
When the metabase property is set to true, the message sent to the client will only include the "220", without the "Microsoft FTP Service".
Configurable banner messages which follow this banner are not affected.
Client: Requires Windows XP Professional with SP2.
Server: Requires Windows Server 2003 with SP1.
