I have a small business server 2003 with 1 network card connected to a gatway router through a switch. I have installed the FTP service in the IIS and I have also created an FTP site in the IIS manager per MS article 816525. I have enabled my gateway router to allow "Virtual server FTP" on ports 21/21. I have it set to allow annoynomous users with the login and password. I have also created the address ftp.<mysite>.com to point to the IP address of the server.
When I type ftp.<mysite>.com in IE it redirects to ftp://ftp
.<mysite>.com and I am given the following FTP Folder Error: Windows cannot access this folder. make sure you typed the file name correctlyand that you have permission to access the folder. Details: The operation timed out. Ok is only option.
I then right clicked in the window and selected Login As... I entered the login and got the same result.
I also tried changing the IP address to "any available" with the same results.
