Hi all,

Have a copy of Server 2008 R2 Datacenter running fully updated etc.

Have installed FTP role with all the ticks in all the boxes and havent left anything out. the issue I am having is that after I go through the "ADD FTP SITE..." I complete the wizard but cannot browse my ftp share using internet explorer.  I Have tried my internal and external IP address, etc etc but just get page cannot be displayed. Also when I type FTP LOCALHOST into a cmd prompt it just says "Connection closed by remote host".

Can anyone help with this at all or advise me of a setting i need to configure?

Thanks

Make sure your firewall has enabled the FTP protocol to pass through.

I have set up IIS  and FTP. I then click on ADD FTP site and point to my files. Im pretty sure I have everything installed however cannot browse to my site via Intenet Explorer.

There must be a way to display your files in IE8 like i have always normally done. What is different about 2008 R2???
