Remove SSL FTP IIS7.5

Posted on 2011-10-18

Just installed a Windows 2008 Web Server using IIS 7.5.

Initially I set the site FTP settings to require SSL and all FTP sites I added had require SSL. Then 1 client found they couldn't handle SSL with FTP so I went to their site and set SSL to optional.

However when I try and connect to that FTP site it still gives the error "Policy Requires SSL". I can't see what else to change.

Any suggestions?

    Yip thats what I meant by SSL optional, the setting "Allow SSL" - when I try to connect it returns "Policy Requires SSL".

    Silly me, I was using the basic username instead of|username which is required for these types of sites under IIS7.
