  1. Well im setting up a ftp server on Windows Server 2003. im using the program Serv-U. the problem is when someone connects to the server they get the message

    STATUS Getting listing ""...
    STATUS Connecting to FTP server xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:21 (ip = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)...
    STATUS Socket connected. Waiting for welcome message...
    ERROR Control connection closed.

    any idea how to fix this problem?

    Looks like your FTP server is not responding.. Perhaps you have to tell Serv-U, which IP addresses are allowed to connect or suchlike? Or maybe you set up SSL and didn't tell your FTP client to use it?

    You had better take a look at the logs on the server side to see what is going on.
