Need to allow access to FTP to users. Using server as router and firewall. Windows server 2003 Enterprise.
Posted on 2007-08-01
I'm having issues with FTP. I'm able to ftp through the server but can't access ftp from any of the client pcs on the network.
operating system=windows server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition
I have a static ip address from road runner.
The server is setup to act as a router and provides internet for the users on the private network "NAT"
I do have the basic firewall enabled. I have disabled it and tested on a users computer and it still doesn't give me access to the outside ftp. Is there access control lists I have to setup? If so how can I do this. I have never used the server as a router and firewall. Or do I need to setup Application Server, and if doing so will this allow users outside access to FTP? I had to configure the server because our company decided to move in one weekend. The server was purchased during the week and setup during the weekend. I had no time to test.... I didn't have time to purchase a router, I'm in the process of this but need to allow ftp for the time being. I do have a router it's a cheap 3com 10/100. We have a cat6 network. If I were to put the router on the network will it affect the performance? Should I keep using the server as the router or use the cheap 3com?
