I have set up my FTP site in Windows Server 2008, but I cannot access the FTP site.



You will need to ensure that there is an Inbound Rule allowing connections over port 21.


1. Start > Administrative Tools>  Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

2. You may receive a UAC Prompt Select "Continue"





3. Select Inbound Rule

.

4. Right click select "New Rule".



5. Under the Rule Type tab, select the radio button "Port"






5. Select "Next"

6. Leave the default TCP radio button selected > add 21 to the Specific local ports > Select "Next"

 

7. Leave the default radio button "Allow the Connection" selected > "Next"

8. "When does this rule Apply"? Select "Next

9. Name the rule> Select Finish



* If you would like to test the connection you can use the TELNET command line tool. (https://help.maximumasp.com/KB/a445/connectivity-testing-with-ping-telnet-tracert-and-pathping-.aspx?KBSearchID=11770)
