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.
