Hello Experts,

I need to create multiple FTP sites on my server using IIS 7.  Does anyone have detailed instructions on how to accomplish this?  I have tried using port 21999 in creating a second FTP site and I can't seem to get it to work. My firewall is allowing the port through. What am I missing??

Thanks in advance,

BJD

I am missing the aspnet stuff underneath my Results FTP site. My Internal FTP site has stuff under it. See the attachment to see what I mean.

Here is a step by step for multiple FTP site.

You may want to consider virtual hosts

Thanks but that didn't help. I already have an existing site and I added the second site. It works perfect internally. I can't access it from outside the network for some reason. I added the windows firewall rules for FTP so i don't know.

Your question stated "how to CREATE multiple FTP sites on your IIS7 server"
The link I provided answered exactly that question :~)

With regard to your new  question as to why you can access the ftp sites from external locations:

How is traffic routed to your servers from the internet  ?

This is your issue you need to have a rule set at the entry point (firewall etc) to have an ACL allowing traffic as follows:

Source IP - any (or the list of ips you expect to access your ftp client)
Source Port - GT 1023
Destination - IP of your FTP server
Dest port - port your ftp server is setup on.


Based on what you have indicated above you have a perfect understanding of virtual hosts and ftp management and only need to resolve why it is not working from external connectivity.

Also if you read the link I provided you would see it allows you the option to use host based ftp which would require no changes to standard ports as you would be able to bind the ip to port 21 and bind specific ftp sites to that ip based on host header.
