I'm trying to host a basic file FTP server from home.

Here are some specs...
- Windows XP SP2
- IIS installed with FTP and the services running
- IP is assigned and on the same IP range as the rest of my network
- FTP directory is setup to point towards a data "D-Drive."
- Anonymous logins only and IIS is configured to accept those.
- Permissions are to Read only

When I try to connect with my FTP client, I get a connection failed.

This has worked before and I've had people access my server to download files. But when I try to connect via FTP from my other system on the LAN to this server, it cannot connect. I can ping the system, browse it via Network Neighborhood and the drive is also mapped properly.

I was thinking of reinstalling Windows 2000 or 2003 server and trying that.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like the firewall is biting you. Do you have FTP port 21 on both SP2 systems set to allow this?

Crap, I forgot about the SP2 firewall settings for the server. :rolleyes

I'll try that when I get home. Thanks!
