Acive FTP

Microsoft Windows

Hi everyone,

Does someone know how to enable the write flag for FTP (setting activ
FTP)on SBS 2003.
I am using SBS 2003 standard which has not the ISA 2004 firewall. Th
reason I want to kow this is because OfficeNet doesn't work anymor
after installing SP2 on SBS 2003. OfficeNet uses Active FTP ports.

Bye
If I would be in your shoes, I would uninstall SP2. As you can see in this
newsgroup there are just too many SBS issues still out there.
Hi Rdenotter,

Thanks for posting in our newsgroup and also for Claus's input.

SP2. If I am off-base, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Please let me know the following to make the situation more clearly:

1. Where does the OfficeNet vist FTP, from LAN or Internet?
2. Is the FTP server installed on SBS 2003 server?

By default the FTP in IIS supports both Active Mode and Passive Mode.
Active-mode FTP is sometimes referred to as "client-managed" because the
client sends a PORT command to the server (over the control connection)
that requests the server to establish a data connection from TCP Port 20 on
the server, to the client, using the TCP port that is specified by the PORT
command. If using Active mode FTP, you just need to open TCP 21 and 20
port.

Please take the following steps to see if the problem can be resoved:

Step 1: I strongly recommend you to rerun the CEICW. This Wizard helps us
to publish FTP correctly. To do this:
1. Open Server Management and then click Internet and E-mail.
2. Select Connect to the Internet and click Next.
3. Do the steps to configure network.
4. On the Firewall page, check Enable firewall and click Next.
5. On the Services Configuration page, make sure FTP is selected.
6. Do the following steps according to the instruction.

For more information, please refer to:
825763 How to configure Internet access in Windows Small Business Server
2003
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=825763

Step 2: Please test the FTP in Active Mode:

Open Internet Explorer, click 'Tools'->'Internet Options'. In 'Advanced'
tab, Check 'Enable folder view for FTP site' option; uncheck 'Use Passive
FTP' option (The IE will work in Active mode FTP), then try the FTP access.

For more information, please refer to:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=309816

Step 3: Please try to disable Receive Side Scaling on SBS server to see if
the problem can be resolved. You can find the detail steps in the following
KB:

Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 2

For more information, please refer to:

Also OfficeNet is third party software, you can contact software
manufacture for more help. Thanks for your understanding.

Hope above information help. If you need further assistance, please don't
hesitate to let me know.

Hi Robert,

Thank you for answer.
About yous questions:
1) The OfficeNet is on a Windows XP client. OfficeNet use port 20 and
21 for communication with the bank. The network is a SBS2003 standard.
2) The FTP server is not installed, because I don't use it.

I think I can make it work if I can set the write flag for FTP. I did
this before on a Windows 2003 server with ISA 2006.

Best regards, Roland.
Hi Roland,

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
that right?

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 am looking forward to hear from you.

If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to let me know.
