I am trying to set up and FTP site with XP Pro SP2. The only clients that will FTP back and forth will be on the same private network.

I have installed IIS and FTP on the box, but when I try to FTP to it I get the following:

H:\>ftp <hostname>
> ftp: connect : connection timed out
ftp> _

I think this may be a new securtity feature of SP2 I did enable the FTP portion to run through windows security.
I am stuck.....please help.....
THX in advance,
Drew

The SP2 personal firewall feature denies all incoming connection by default including file/print shares and ICMP.  Go to the advanced tab under your network settings for the LAN interface.  You will be able to allow incoming connections there.  FTP is TCP prot 20/21.

Under network settings of the LAN interface go to properties/advanced/windows firewall settings/exceptions/Add port/.  Then add a new name called FTP with TCP port 21.  This will allow passive FTP which should be enough.  If you want active FTP you will have to enable TCP port 21 as well.
