I need to setup a new FTP server on Windows 2019. This is replacing an FTP server on Windows 2008 that was using Windows FTP services

Users need to connect using Windows File Explorer.

I installed Filezilla and It works fine running FTP from a command prompt but I could not get Windows File Explorer to connect.

I then installed Windows FTP services and I have the same problem. I could access FTP on the 2008 server using Windows File Explorer but not on the 2019 server

The Windows firewall is turned off. When I enter the user name and password I get the message

FTP Folder Error
An error occurred opening that folder on the FTP Server.  Make sure you have permission to access that folder.
The connection with the server was reset

Once this is working, I'll need to make sure it works through the Firewall like the 2008 server did
