FTP 7 over SSL Question/Problem

Hello Experts,

I have a WEB and an FTP server on a machine running Server 2008 Standard.
All is working. I have no problems connecting to any of my site and my FTP.
The problem is that one of our clients requires Security on his FTP.
So I made a new FTP site for him and configured it to use SSL(Certificate is already generated)
When I try to get in using IE6, it gives me a "534 Policy requires SSL." Error.
So I used a 3rd party FTP client, FileZilla.

I configured filezilla to use FTPS - implicit and clicked connect it gave me:
Status:      Connecting to 192.168.0.150:21...
Status:      Connection established, initializing TLS...
Error:      Connection timed out
Error:      Could not connect to server

So I tried without FTPS and it gave me:
Status:      Connecting to 192.168.0.150:21...
Status:      Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:      220 Microsoft FTP Service
Command:      USER domain\user - **edited**
Response:      534 Policy requires SSL.
Error:      Could not connect to server

I researched a bit and found bunch of guys having the same problem but unfortunately I can't find any solution.
Also, Symanted Endpoint Enterprise is installed in the server. I already allowed port 20, 21. Also I saw on the web that Passive FTP uses 1023, so I did open that. I might be wrong though.

This is the first time we deployed Server 2008 on our network. So we are pretty much a beginner on this subject.

Thanks in advance.

Jasper

Which port is your SSL listening to? You have to enter that port number in filezilla port field before clicking on quick connect. Right cliclk on the FTPS Site and see the port its listening to.

Hello,

Thank you for replying.
FTPS Site is listening to port 21. I didn't touch it.
I tried setting it up to other un use port but still not successful.

we wound up putting a hold on ftp7 and went with ftps using 3rd party filezilla.
