I have a multi-stage problem I need help on.

I'm building an IIS 7.5 FTP server.  
It needs to:
Use IIS Managed Accounts with user isolation
Use SSL
Sit in the DMZ
Use the Windows firewall

Currently, I can get the IIS Managed accounts to work (including user isolation) on the local system (using ftp localhost to test)

Layout:
Windows 2008 R2
FTP root is on d:\

Stage 1:
The first stage is getting it to work with the Windows Firewall.  I cannot connect to it internally at all -- only on the local host.

Stage 2:
I need it to work with FTP over SSL exclusively.  There will eventually be confidential data going across the connection on the internet.

Stage 3:
Once Stage 1 is complete, then I need to disjoin the box from the domain, and move it out to the DMZ.

Stage 4:
I'll need to configure it along with our managed firewall for external access.  

And for everyone - I have read the tutorials on learn.iis.net and they really are not particularly helpful.. they seem to gloss over a lot of key details for a semi-locked down configuration.

I'm going to close it.. partially solved myself already.

1. Apparently there is a problem with the default Windows firewall rules.  I had to remove them and recreate them to be able to connect.

2. Once the firewall problem was fixed, the rest of this was very straightforward.

3. completed

4. in progress :-)
