Configuring FTP Server on Windows 2008R2
Posted on 2014-08-04
I'm having issues connecting to my newly created FTP Site on my Windows 2008R2 server. I've created the site. It is running. Using "Basic" authentication. I've setup an FTP Security group in AD and added some AD users to it, myself included.
From the server, from a command prompt, I'm typing ftp localhost and I believe it should bring to a prompt where I can enter my username and password. However, when I do this, I get the following:
Connected to servername.domain.local
Connection closed by remote host
It never gives me the prompts. I followed steps to create this site directly from an online training source so I'm fairly certain I did everything right. Any suggestions?
