When using Internet Explorer to FTP into an ftp site on Windows Web Server 2008 it appears blank.  Using any FTP software, or using Windows Explorer to FTP in it works just fine.

Make sure that the FTP site allows Passive mode transfers, browsers use passive mode, other apps do not.

It was a combination of isolation mode (which was a huge security issue by itself) and passive authentication.  Ended up using a different FTP Server.
