FTP on Windows 2008 Server
  

It seems there was some confusion in the fields of Microsoft on the proper way to install the FTP service. This seems to be rooted in the fact that it took a last minute decision to exclude the new FTP Publishing Service IIS 7 in favor of the old FTP Publishing Service, In some case, once examination the installation of the FTP selection in the Add Features of my Server Manager I seen that gaily added a fresh entry of "FTP Server" in my Windows Firewall. So later than for several minutes playing with the permissions of the user, control the policies of my Netscreen firewall, etc. I originate that if you turn off Windows Firewall totally I might connect and list records without any crisis. If Windows Firewall was on I might obtain on the list except not the files. And start breaking manual FTP active / passive and ports required for that to be operational.

Re: FTP on Windows 2008 Server

I have gone through this same issue and I would like to suggest you to following steps and so that you can solve your issue. To do this you need to have inetpub.exe and after that you can solve your issue. I think you donít have the inetpub.exe file on your Windows Server 2008. This file is normally located at: c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\inetpub.exe. So I would like to suggest you top install the inetpub.exe and after that you can solve your issue. I hope this will help you.

I think you need to change the Configure Windows Firewall Settings and so that you can solve your issue. To do this: go to the start and after that make hit on the all program. Now under the all program go to the accessories and after that make hit on the command prompt. Now under that type the following and hit enter after every command.
Quote:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="FTP (non-SSL)" action=allow protocol=TCP dir=in localport=21
netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFtp enable
Now once finish this command and after that close the command prompt and after that go through your issue.
