Hi all,

I have a web server within our network that is not a member of the domain. I have installed the following role services:

- FTP Server
- FTP Service
- FTP Extensibility

I have then setup an FTP site using the following walkthrough:

http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/301/creating-a-new-ftp-site/

When I go to connect to the server locally or elsewhere on the network I get the following error:

C:\Windows\System32>ftp 10.0.0.249
Connected to 10.0.0.249.
Connection closed by remote host.


If I connect via ftp://localhost or ftp://10.0.0.x, I am just told that the web page cannot be displayed.

Thanks!

Al

Did you set FTP traffic in Windows Firewall as allowed on Windows Server?

Windows added in the following automatically:

- FTP Server (FTP Traffic-in) Allow TCP 21
- FTP Server Passive (FTP Passive Traffic-In) Allow TCP 1024-65535
- FTP Server Secure (FTP SSL Traffic-in) Allow TCP 990

The physical path is C:\inetpub\ftproot.

All Users have read permissions and Administrators have Full Control.

Hi iSiek,

It does have Full Control. So does TrustedInstaller.

I have also stopped all services for Symantec Endpoint Protection, but I don't think this would make any difference as the settings are applied by dedicated server and another machine on the network has FTP access (which is working) the only difference is that the working server is Windows Server 2003.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

I can also browse to the server on port 80 and get the default IIS7 welcome message.

I have no FTP/File Transfer Protocol service listed in Services?

If I try to install that update I am just told:

This version of the operating system is not supported. FTP service 7.5 for IIS 7.0 can be installed on Windows Server 2008.

I have formatted and started again. Now appears to be working. Unsure why it wasn't before so unable to document.
