Help needed setting up ftp site on IIS 7

This is a fresh installation of Server 2008. I'm trying to get a ftp site working. I've obiously not got something right....

My sever ip address is The default website is bound to this address. I've added a second address to the Local Area Connection: I've added an ftp site in IIS 7 and bound it to this address.  From withiin IIS I can explore the physical location. But if I try to access the ftp site from Windows explorer on another machine on the network, the site is unavailable. I tried opening windows explorer at the Server console and accessing I got the error 550 - no such host is known.

So what might I have done wrong?

From the server itself I also get a 550 error. I also tried right clicking and 'Login as'. I've now got anonymous access enabled on the FTP site. The problem is still the same.


It looks like i'm not going to get any further with this. I've given up trying to make it work now. So I'll thank you for your input and award the points so I can close this question.
