Thanks for updating.
I am not sure about the following:
1. FTP server is on the Internet, the ftp client is Windows XP with
OfficeNet software. Is that right?
2. You want the Windows XP with OfficeNet visit FTP with active mode. Is
Please change the IE to work in Active mode FTP and see if this helps.
Please also try to disable Receive Side Scaling on SBS server, my issues
such as companyweb is resolved by doing so.

I have had no problem accessing the default FTP on port 21, but when I setup another FTP with a different port like 22 my browser nor FTP client will go through. The FTP client (Cute FTP) shows the progress of connecting, accepting the port, authenticating. When it acts like it's going to go into the folder it says: 192.168.1.10 to server address 74.xx.xx.xx.xx. 74.xx.xx.xx:29725 timeout. 1) Verify CuteFTP. 12) Verify that your anti-virus software is not at fault (try disabling it). 500 Invalid PORT Command. The Firewall Port 22 is open pointing to 192.168.1.10 and IIS firewall allows port 22. As I said the default FTP is working fine and this FTP is setup the same with the exception of the port number.Are you using Stadard or Premium with ISA installed?Standard
navigate to "Network Connection". 4. Right Click "Properties". 5. In the tab "NAT/Basic Firewall" then you can configure detail firewall configuration. 6. In the "Service and Ports" tab, configure the firewall setting for FTP. For premium SBS server with ISA installed, ISA server integrated with a FTP filter which can automatically open the ports for passive mode FTP. Please refer to the server publishing section in the following KB article: 294679 How to enable external client computers access to a File Transfer http://support.microsoft.com/?id=294679 I hope the above information helps.

access in Windows Small Business Server 2003 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/825763/en-us After we run the CEICW, there will be a rule called "SBS Internet access Rule" in ISA server. This rule will allow outbound FTP access. 2. By default, the "SBS Internet access Rule" will allow outbound FTP access. Therefore, we do not need to create other rule about FTP access in ISA. Please delete all your customize FTP rule in ISA. 3. Right click the "SBS Internet access Rule" in ISA server, select Configure FTP. Then, uncheck the Read Only option. Click OK. 4. Move this "SBS Internet access Rule" to top of the firewall rule list, and click Apply. If we cannot resolve the issue after we perform the above steps
After updating the security updates i am not able to connect ftp using cute ftp or if i type ftp.website.com . I am able to access the ftp from the server. Cant read from control socket. Socket error=#10054 my default gateway is 192.168.1.1 (sever) . all the machines are workstations. if i change the gateway to our adsl router the ftp works.What SBS version are you running? 1NIC or 2NIC setup? Are you running ISA? What updates did you apply?SBS - Starndard edition not using ISA 2 NIC .. both connected to switch all comp and the adsl router also connected to switch I updated the windows updates which come automatically2 NICs to the same switch????????
put one in I get: "Connection closed by remote host" So as you can see I am stuck. My Internet Access Rule allows outbound access for all users with all protocols and has the FTP filtering enabled with the Read Only option unchecked. Any ideas on how to correct this issue? Laramie HartmannFurther information regarding the issue I am using IE7 and from what I can gather online there may be some compatibility issues between ISA 2004 and IE7 regarding FTP access. long as I use the format ftp://username:[email protected]
Otherwise i receive: Error Code: 502 Proxy Error. However, using ftp.exe to access the same FTP server I receive the error: Host is unreachable I'm pulling my hair out on this one so any ideas are apreciated. Thanks again, Laramie Hartmann
SBS? If so, do you use ISA 2000 or ISA 2004?

.5 and i VPN all the time for email and have mapped drives to copy to local C: edit, then copy back to the server - it works fine but obviously is due to DSL service upload speed. We have one shared data folder that everything is saved in. Would it be possible for me to setup an FTP server than can use this shared folder so i can access via FTP through VPN. Our PIX firewall is only open for SMTP and PPTP so i don't really want to open for FTP. Will FTP "work" through a VPN?Geoff: Why not use RWW, straight RDC session or RDC session with a VPN to remote control a WinXP workstation on your LAN? All the data then remains on the LAN.

Hi everyone, We setup an SBS Windows 2k3 R2 with ISA 2004 and Exchange. Our network has a load balacing router (Linksys RV042) as well. We got an application which once a week we have through a script to update it, but it doesn't work. According to the supplier we have to open the ftp port. We pointed the RV042 to this ftp server and we opened a rule on the ISA server, but still doesn't work. I post here the log of the connection - hope you can help us. Thanks in advance.

Hi, what is good FTP server software to use? On a W2K server we have many ftp clients have connection difficulties, sometimes MAC problems, sometimes passive/active problems and sometimes FETCH client problems etc. Currenly not using any third party FTP server. Thinking of going to this. Any advice on what is a good product? Paddy.I use Gene6FTP server. Once set up, it runs well. Was a bit tricky to figure out, but I had NO FTP server experience before using it. It also allows for virtual domains. -Mike
I just installed ISA 2004 on my main SBS 2003 server. Whenever i try and access the FTP server for my website i get an error 550 Acess Denied make sure u have permission to access this folder.

I followed these steps below to solve the issue but it didn;t solve it ISA2004 defaults Access Rules involving FTP to Read Only. Right-click the relevant Access Rule, choose Configure FTP, and remove the Read Only tick. OK, and then hit the big Apply. Is there any else i can check?Look at your ISA rules.

you able to add other links to http sites? Since this is a complex issue and it is related to multiple technologies (IIS/IE/WSS), it may take some time to troubleshoot the problem.

over the Internet results when you attempt transfers through a Network Boundary Securing Device (NBSD) such as a proxy, firewall, or Network Address Translation (NAT) device. In most cases the NBSD allows the control connection to be established over TCP 21 (that is, the user can successfully log on to the FTP server), but when the user attempts a data transfer such as DIR, LS, GET, or PUT, the FTP client appears to stop responding because the NBSD is blocking the data connection port that is specified by the client. If the NBSD supports logging, you can verify port blocking by reviewing the deny/reject logs on the NBSD. http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?id=283679Bill, I had the same problem awhile back and I did some research and I found out that the problems appears
