I am having issues setting up FTP on Windows Server 2012.  I am hosting on a VM using AWS.  I have opened all the required ports on the security group for the VM.  I also allowed pass through on Advanced Security firewall.  I even opened ALL TCP ports on security group and disabled the firewall.  I still cannot connect.  I did not have this issue with Server 2008.  I have tried passive connections, and secure connections with a certificate that I generated.  I have tried setting up both the FTP in IIS as well as tried FileZilla FTP Server.  Same issue on both.  FIlezilla Server does connect ON the Server 2012 but will not connect to FTP or Filezilla outside the network.  I seems like a firewall issue but since I disabled the firewall and it still does not work, I'm baffled.

Has anyone run into this issue and know how to fix it?

I can touch base on FileZilla Server, as we use it on Server 2012 R2.  If it works internally, it is an issue with your router/firewall and not with server 2012.

What kind of router/firewall do you have?

I'm using Amazon AWS so I have to open ports on AWS account on the security group. The firewall I disabled to check it was the Windows Firewall.  I also just let the application through first before opening All of the firewall.

for passive in FileZilla, do you have port 21 and the custom range ports open in AWS?

Basically it gives the notice that my user and pass may be wrong or a firewall issue. I have it set up the same on Windows Server 2008.  It works fine with just passive connection. No Ssl required or certificate.

I decided to just use Git Hub as repository and don't need FTP for now.  Not ideal but works for versioning a website anyway.
