Server 2008 R2 FTPS setup and access via explorer 8 - It must be secure!!!

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I have found the following link

I have completed it to the letter, but there are a few things that are incomplete,  
It has to be accessed via the Explorer Browser 8, right now, I didn't want to complicate things by added a domain name , I just want to access it through ip address like this, ftps://
but that doesn't work...
So, now I just want to get this up and running? I know there are some mistakes in here can you point them out and guide me through this?

What am I doing wrong, has anyone tried to secure FTPs via windows 2008 R2 and the webserver is in standalone, not connected to the domain.

This is a maximun secured ftp server...
