Currently we connect to our 2012 server using port 21 FTP to add files etc.  We would like to make this connection secure using either port 22 or port 990.

I have created the certificate in IIS and set this to Allow SSL.  IN the Bindings I have port 21, 22, and 990 to connect to the IP over FTP which Im not sure I need

The networking team opened the above ports in the router firewalls.  We can connect either port but we cant load the directory like in standard FTP.

Windows firewall is allowing FTP 21 and 990.  FTP Firewall support under IIS is set to 0-0

Connect socket #1008 to *********, port 990...
