You cant really "set up a telnet/ftp/smtp server in C#" in my understanding...
Unless you mean "how do I write one of those servers from scratch in C#"??

You probably want to go and download an existing telnet/ftp/smtp server program, and make it run at start-up on your PC...

Well if I can make a web server. How come I can't make a Telnet, FTP or a SMTP server.

And I don't realy want some one else software. I wanted some thing that I can put together and call it my own.

for ftp you could simply read : http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc959/

similar protocol descriptions are avaliable for SMTP and Telnet aswell.

You do not want to write any of those. Under dictionary, this is the very definition of re-inventing the wheel.

Google around a bit, there's literally tens of thousands of any of those around, in either source or binary form in any language imaginable.

That will also determine how you set it up.

I guess I misunderstood your question. "Making" a server in implies writing code that acts as a server. "Setting up" a server implies taking an existing server-package and making it work on a new system.
Hence the confusion about using C# to "set up" a server.

If you're doing this for educational/interest purposes, then start by reading the specifications of those protocols, like SimonForsman said.

But if you're doing this simply because you want FTP access to your PC, it'd be much easier to use existing software instead of reinventing something so common.

Ok, This is talking about how to connect to an FTP server. Not related to making an FTP server

1)
The reason is that I all ready run an telnet, FTP and SMTP server. How ever I want to run my own projects.

2) I'm not looking for a FTP Client. I can get them form free on the Internet. I want to setup a Telnet, FTP and a SMTP server.

3) I'm sure theres libraries out there some where that where I can add these add server options to my projects. With doc's or manuals that can help me set up some thing.

I'm all google.com out.

It's the official specification of the FTP protocol - it's applicable to server-writers and client-writers.
