Hello,

I have installed FTP 7.5 in IIS 7 and have setup a FTP site.
Everything worked fine, I could read/upload/modify the files using FTP client Filezilla.

Now, I am trying to create another FTP site.
I have created a second FTP site pointing to a different folder in web server, then I tried to connect to the second FTP site using FTP client but I couldn't. I knew I am not allowed to use the same port for the second FTP site, so I typed a new port number for the second FTP site (22, not 21) but still cannot connect to the FTP site.

So, my questions are:
Q1: Is port 22 available for use? Is this port used by another protocol? What port number should I use for the second FTP server?

Q2: What could possibly preventing my FTP client from connecting to the FTP site?

Here are the messages Filezilla displayed while I'm trying to connect to the FTP server:

Status:      Connecting to XXX.22.43.20:22...
Status:      Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:      220 Microsoft FTP Service
