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

Did you upgrade from Windows 2000?

Are you sure ftp is up and running on the server? Try connecting to ftp while you are on the server

Go to a command prompt and type:

ftp localhost

If you then get asked for a username and password, or get no errors and connected to ftp, then ftp is working as it should locally
