FTP Site


I have setup an FTP Site in Windows Server 2008. For a wile on my local network, I was able to see on a different PC, all my files via File Explorer (ftp://192.168....). Now every time I setup a new virtual directory or if I add any file to the local drive, I can not see it any more. It worked for a wile, now it does not.

*****Even if the firewall is down (OFF), still don't list the files..******
What am I missing?  (I really don't want to start installation from scratch.)

- This was working very well for few weeks, before I started to adjust few firewall permissions. Now, I can pull the http Page on the FTP site, but I can not list the files. At all..

Thanks in advance.

These are the steps I used to try to enable to get my FTP site through the firewall. But I think I did something else that even if my Firewall is OFF, still don't work.

Any other ideas?
Check what application pool is running the ftp-site, and what user is running that pool.

Then check if that user has rights on the folders you expose to the ftp-site.

Thanks for the help... The application pool wasn't configured correctly. I had both FTP IIS 6.0 and 7.0, there were conflicts. Removed my FTP IIS 6.0 with reboot, everything is good now. Thanks.
