FTP Troubles

By mrace

  1. I have an box with a dedicated IP. Through IIS I've set up my default FTP site along with a home directory. Through my router, I've forwarded port 21 to the appropriate IP. I can get connected with FTP, however, when I do I get no return. My client just sits there saying it's connected but no keyboard/mouse interaction, nothing displays. If I break out of my FTP connection then any commands I've tried to initiate are resident at my local client and not my FTP Server.

    What am I missing?
