IIS 7.0 FTP Strange things happening

alexcallea used Ask the Experts™
Hi there,
I have a very weird thing appening with my ftp server:
-Just created a new ftp site in IIS (running W2008R2)
-Enabled the rules in windows firewall

Everything looks ok.
I then connect with my ftp client, authentication is ok and then there is an error when opening the data connection (see images).

I first thought it was an rights issue bit it does the same with the domain admin account....

Any idea?
