Cannot access ftp site externally RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hey everyone,

    I have searched forums high and low and still cannot get my issue resolved. I have server 2008 enterprise and I am trying to get an ftp site up and running. However its not working. I have set up the site with mostly default settings. The good thing is that I can access the ftp site internally. Some more good news is i can use the ftp ipaddress command in cmd and i get logged in without issue. But I cannot access the ftp externally from IE or windows explorer, I get the following errors:

    "An error occurred opening that folder on the FTP Server. Make sure you have permission to access that folder"


    200 Type set to A.

  • I'd ask the IIS/FTP experts over here.
