I am trying to set up my ftp server.  This link is proving helpful and I do have the service running on the server however I am getting hung up on the ssl certificate.  I thought I created one but not sure where it is or how I retrieve it.  Any help would be much appreciated.

How do you create the certificate?

Did you make this similar steps to create the certificate?
Follow this link Create certificate

After the certificate request did you submitted to a Internal or external Certification Authority?

Please provide the steps that you made.

That depends.

This FTP is to be accessed externally or internally?

What I mean is, do you want that certificate to be recognize externally with out Warnings or is just for internal purposes?

It is just so I can upload web file changes via a web editor (WebMatrix2 in my case).

Ok.

So I think this will do the trick.

Because you already said that you have the certificate, let´s check if he is already installed.

So open IIS-> ServerName-> Server certificates.
Check if exists any certificate installed on the central pane, if exist do the following:

Select you FTP directory-> Central Pane SSL settings-> Dropdown list SSL certificate and choose the certificate.
Then click in custom->Advance
Choose require only for credentials on the control channel and Data channel choose require.

On the action pane choose apply.

Restart IIS

If you don´t have a certificate you need to create a self signed certificate and follow the steps above.

I hope it helps.

Let me know.

How do I set my firewall up to accept incoming connections on port 1433?  I am being told by my hosting company that this is not enabled.  I have an unmanaged server so they are actually going above and beyond the call of duty by doing that.  I need to be able to ftp, be able to upload documents to my web sites via classic asp web sites, and connect to my sql server database.

Can you tell us your steps?

What happens when you try to connect to the ftp server?

I have no idea how to do this.  I have never had to before.  Here is what my provider said:

"Lastly, your SQL server is setup to allow remote connections ,but your firewall isn't. You'll need to ensure that the firewall is setup to accept inbound connections to port 1433 (and port 1434 if you wish to use a named instance). Currently, I see no rule specified for this port and this would be why your remote connection isn't working."

1º But can you connect to the FTP and upload files?

2º How do you connect to the server, from home, is a private network, etc?

3º Do you have a Router?

1) Not until I get the port open on my server firewall.

2) I have a cable broadband internet connection at home.  Sometimes I use a hotspot on the road timing races.  Sometimes I am at a coffee shop.  Many scenarios.

3) At home I have a modem...not sure if I have a router.

I am going to close this out and re-open a ticket focusing on opening up the firewall on my server.  That looks to  be the thing that is missing, no?
