Can you ping the FTP port 21 to see if the server is running.

I've left iis and decided to use filzilla instead, however do I disable access for all ips except the ones I specify?

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

Check FTP Port 21 with a Windows OS

Click on the Start menu button, usually located on the left low corner of the screen. There is a tab called “Run”. You have to click on it, in order to proceed further. You will notice the appearance of a new small window on the screen. In the text field of this window you need to type “cmd” and then press the “Enter” key. Another window will open. It is the so called “MS-DOS prompt” or “command prompt”. Just type the following command in the command prompt window and press “Enter”:

telnet my-domain-name.com 21

Have a look at this link for Install Internet Information Services and the FTP Service

This link will help with the testing of the FTP server.

thanks I think it was a firewall switch blocking access, its working for our voice controllers and that's the only thing we really needed, the voice controllers will be backing up the data onto this ftp.
