    Hello All,

    I have a w2k3 server running RRAS, with VPN, IIS6.0, and FTP. Everything
    works fine with the exception of FTP. Every other situation that i have seen
    with this problem occures when someone has attempted to change the port from
    21 but i am still using 21.
    I am using microsoft NAT (obviously) and all the services are running on the
    same server. I can connect and authenticate just fine, but i am unable to
    get a directory listing (or any other data). I know its a NAT issue, but im
    not sure why. I can access other ftp sites without a problem.

    I have restarted RRAS, and i have also set up a linksys router to make sure
    that it is the NAT that is causeing the problem, and i can hit the server
    just fine when using the linksys. When i first set this up it worked just
    fine. I have not done anything or changed anything since then. The server
    has Norton AV installed and its up to date - ran virous scanner and the
    server is clean. Any ideas!?!

  2. Hi,
    I assume you mean that the FTP service is not accessible from the internet.
    You need to allow port 21 full internet access on your firewall and make
    sure FTP is bound to your external IP.
