Access FTP Site Externally through IE using IIS 7.5

I have created an FTP site using IIS 7.5 on SBS 2011. I am able to access the site both internally and externally through command prompt, however I am unable to access anything through IE. I keep getting page cannot be displayed. Any suggestions?


Ok, I am able to authenticate internally now through IE.

ftp://servername

However, I still cannot access the site externally.


I get this error when trying to connect externally through IE:

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 (192,168,254,10,187,64).

Can you connect externally using an ftp client?

I think heres the key to the problem based on the response in Filezilla
 AUTH TLS;TLS-C;SSL;TLS-P;

So I think you need to look at authenication methods for the FTP site.   If you want SSL then you'll need an SFTP client.   IE won't do that

Personally I never use MS FTP and always use Filezilla FTP server.   You should understand that if you use MS FTP and you intend for users outside your org to connect to it, it requires SBS Cals    Filezilla does not require CALS because it has its own authenication method...doesn't use AD.   this actually provides some additional level of security.
I want to use IE, I dont need SSL. How do I disable it in IIS 7.5?
All I want to do is connect through IE the same way I did using FTP through IIS 6. It was so simple to setup and deploy.
This article may be of some help
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772009(v=ws.10).aspx

Otherwise I would search technet for IIS Authenication

I don't typically mess with IIS in SBS because it's too easy to screw up the other sites

Is this only for your company employee's?   what kind of files are they getting?
Yes its for a company I supports employees. They need to access typical data files, docs, pics, drawings etc.
