FTP Folder Error, Windows cannot access this folder

  1. Default FTP Folder Error, Windows cannot access this folder

    Hey guys,

    Im having some problems this morning with the creation of my FTP
    site...

    I can successfully get to the site internally, but I can not
    externally. The external user seems to be able to reach the server, and
    when entering the username and password they receive a message as
    follows:

    ""FTP Folder Error
    Windows cannot access this folder. Make sure that you typed the file
    name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.

    Details:
    The connection with the server was reset.""

    I dont think this is a firewall issue? but maybe. I have gone back to
    all the folders Im wanting the users to access and they have full
    control over these... I have unchecked allow anonomous connections, as
    I need the users to login... dont know if thats right...

    Im using IIS 6.0 on a Windows 2003 server.

    Thanks in advance.

    Almost certainly a firewall issue, either on the server or the clients.

    What firewall exception settings have you made (exactly)?

    For instance, on the IIS server, the FTP firewall exceptions have to be made
    as an Application Exception on inetinfo.exe, and not as exceptions on "port
    21" and so on. Application exceptions are only available for Windows 2003
    SP1 onwards.

    Clients are also problematic, because of the possibility of reverse
    connections being made from server to client for the data transfer. Again,
    application exceptions have to be made for the FTP client application, not
    port-number exceptions.

    When troubleshooting IIS FTP remotely, always connect via ftp.exe first...

    post your output here.

    This is resolved...

    I tried connecting via thye cmd prompt and did a search on the output.
    The Firewall wasnt set up correctly.

    Now the only issue Im having is the users can log in, but cant move
    items "within" the ftp site.

    We are using IE 6 to navigate around the site. Users can delete, upload
    and download, but not move documents from folder1 to folder2 within
    nthat site... Shouldnt they be able to?

    move ?
    Well, there's no such command in ftp. It is essentially copy and delete from
    source.
    some ftp client bundle both commands and provide the 'move' feature. I don't
    think IE has that, and it is just a very plain simple ftp client, it's more
    focus as web browser.
