FTP on Windows Server 2008 R2

I couldn’t successfully access a new FTP site setup under IIS on Windows Server 2008 R2 from other machines.  It turns out the the default FTP firewall rules don’t actually work all that well, or at all.

Running the following from the command line added in a seemingly unnecessary rule

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”FTP-In (no SSL)” action=allow protocol=TCP dir=in localport=21

But after a reboot, remote access to the FTP server was fine.

As gleamed from the following forum post
