I asked a question about this a few weeks ago, but it's not quite right yet.
If I use the Dos FTP command, I can access this ftp site prefectly. But in Windows Explorer, or Internet Explorer I get this error:
An error occured opening that folder on the FTP Server, Make sure you have permission to access that folder. Details
200 Type set to A
227 Entering Passive Mode
I can get around this by configuring Internet Explorer not to use Passive Mode, but I need to have this so that non-technical people can access the site without changing their Internet settings.
I assume that i'm having this problem because I need to open a passive port range in the server's Windows Firewall. To open port 21 I used this command:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="FTP (non-SSL)" action=allow protocol=TCP dir=in localport=21
I read also that to allow passive connections, i should enter this command:
netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFtp enable
Obviously I have done something incorrectly because I still cannot use passive connections. Help please?
