I installed the ftp service with windows 2008, i can ftp to the windows 2008 no problem from inside the firewall. From the outside, I can;t ftp tp windows 2008 server. I enable port forwarding for port 21 to my internal windows 2008 box. I do not get an authentication prompt unlike from the inside: (this is what i get on command prompt)

ftp> ls
not connected

Do i need to open more port for the ftp service of windows 2008?
