HI,
I published one FTP in IIS and it is working fine locally. If I try to access from out side, i am getting error " permission problem"  I installed filezilla FTP client and I got the below error:

=================
I already forwarded ports 21 and 20 in pix to local FTP server.
What extra settings I need to access the FTP from outside through IE or Windows Explorer.

Thanks
Pradeep

Ftp uses more ports then 20 and 21, in your case i guess you need to forward port 1023 also.
You can also look at your pix log, to see why the connection is dropped.
see this article for more information on port use of FTP
