IIS 6 Windows 2003 SBS Server. IIS installed okay. Web server running nicely. FTP seems to be configured okay, but when I connect with a client I cannot get the directory listing for the home directory (non-isolated) as configured in the FTP site setup. Connection times out. Same result when using the administrator account. It sits there trying to get the directory listing and eventually times out.
I have checked that the permissions on the directory allow full control for the administrator, and that administrator can "log on locally". I was getting this entry in the event viewer yesterday but none today although the problem persists:
User administrator failed to log on, could not access the home directory /.
Here is the log of the client connection.
State:> Creating control socket...
State:> Connecting to xxxxxx.xxxxx.xxx ...
State:> Socket connected, waiting for welcome message...
Reply:> 220 Microsoft FTP Service
Command:> user administrator
Reply:> 331 Password required for xxxxxxxx.
Command:> pass *********
Reply:> 230 User administrator logged in.
Reply:> 257 "/" is current directory.
State:> Creating data socket...
Error:> Operation timed out
State:> Force close data connection.
It does work from the server itself and ports 20-21 are fowarded to the server. I am using a Netgear FVS 318.
