HI expert,

I recently upgrade to windows server 2003.  Everything is working fine, but one small issue is when i'm trying to use client FTP to connection to FTP server I have no luck.  It's work great on windows XP, but not on windows server 2003.  I'm not sure this is something must do to security or firewall protection.  I turn off firewall try to logon ftp, but still no luck.  Would someone advise me.   Thanks

Hi
Have you tried changing the setting on passive ftp in internet explorer?
in Internet Explorer - from
the "Tools" menu, select "Internet Options".  Select the "Advanced" tab,
and scroll down to "Use Passive FTP (for firewall and DSL modem
compatibility)" - uncheck it if it is checked and see if that helps at all.

If not, is your windows xp machine on the same lan as your 2003 server, and are they access ing internet through a firewall?
