I have a remote server(windows server 2008 r2) and I want to upload documents to this server by using ftp. I add the web server(iis 7.0) role and open the ftp services. Than I create an ftp site. It seems working, when i try to connect from command promt I can connect(both from my laptop and from the server itself.) But when i try to use filezilla and enter the credentials. It says connection timed out and so it does not show the directories. what might be the reason and how can i fix this? cmd_screenshot filezilla_screenshot

Hi,

check this one

1) Open port 21 on the firewall

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="FTP (no SSL)" action=allow protocol=TCP dir=in localport=21

2) Activate firewall application filter for FTP (aka Stateful FTP) that will dynamically open ports for data connections

netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFtp enable

Also check in the client application (filezilla) if you need to uncheck Passive mode for data connections; that is, use Active mode.

Take a look at this resource:   http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html
