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

FTP and ISA Server 2006

So I was trying to push some files out from a hosted server today and while i could get files from the remote FTP site, i couldn’t upload, create directories or delete anything on the remote server.

Once i realised that i had no problem doing that from my laptop, i realised the culprit was most likely the ISA 2006 server that was sitting in front of the hosted server.

After a little digging around i found that while the outbound FTP access rule was configured, ISA Server 2006 makes it Read Only by default.  Once you’ve setup the rule, make sure you right-click, Configure FTP and remove Read-Only to get full FTP access.

Get the full detail thanks to the wonder of Google here: http://darrenmyher.wordpress.com/2011/05/26/ftp-550-access-is-denied-error/
