Question : FTP not working on Windows Server 2008 IIS 7

I setup FTP on a Windows Server 2008 box with IIS 7. Can FTP using IE on the server but it doesn't work anywhere else. Port in router is forwarded to port 21.

Can use a command prompt from a workstation to ftp and it works. Will not work from IE or any FTP client.

Answer : FTP not working on Windows Server 2008 IIS 7


Wan,Lan or internet, as long as the serverip is reachable and the firewalls are open, you can connect. with IIS5/6 you could do the following.

Ftp://user:[email protected]ver/url-path

Now as of last year, IE7 and 8 required the following fix on the client or else the userid was not processed.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
