Can't logon FTP on Windows 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed FTP server on a windows 2008 R2. I can ping the port 21. When I access it using localhost name and or IP address on the winodws 2008 r2 server, the logon screen popup, but I can't logon. I have tried the administrator account. For a test, I also added everyone to the FTP folder with full permissions. What could be the problem?
