Configure Cisco Firewall and IIS7 for FTP


my Windows 2008 Server is behind a Cisco ASA 5505/10 firewall and I need to make a PASV ftp connection working for them.
What I did in IIS I add a port range for ftp 49152-65535 and enter the IP of the firewall.
Now I ever get a 550 timeout from my ftp client.
About the firewall I found that I've to enter a new policy with these lines:
class-map inside-class
match default-inspection-traffic
policy-map inside-policy
class inside-class
inspect ftp
service-policy inside-policy interface inside

Now I get no more timeout message but also no successful connect ...
Are there some more steps to do now?

Thanks Andre

Do you have an ACL on the firewall that's allowing inbound FTP traffic? i.e.:

access-list aclname permit tcp any host eq ftp
access-list aclname permit tcp any host eq ftp-data

Also I would disable firewall on the Windows 2008 server if you have that enabled.

On the ASA there may be (depending on your version of code) a command:

ftp mode passive
