I am trying to setup 2 seperate ftp site on a windows 2000 server with IIS. For some reason, only port 21 will work. Not a firewall or router problem. I know I need two seperate ports for each ftp site, but only 21 gives me access.

All other ports return an error.

What about the other FTP port?

There are 2 so did you open both?

" A client opens a connection to the FTP control port (port 21) of an FTP server. So that the server will be later able to send data back to the client machine, a second (data) connection must be opened between the server and the client. "

That is unless you are using PASV.

Hmmm. Not sure I get it.

I have created two ftp sites, both turned on.

The one on port 21 works perfectly. I assume I cannot have two seperate sites running on the same port, so I assigned a port other than 21 to the second server., with no port, takes me to the 21 site. But, if I assign, let us say, port 45 to the second site and do, I get an error.

Here, in a nutshell, is what I want. I have two users, and I want them to access this server via ftp, but see different directories. I don't want them both seeing each other's work, which is why I setup two sites.

I'm sorry if I seem ignorant, but I'm new to ftp. I've read that iis is not the best.

Any secondary port I have chosen I have forwarded in the router, so I know that's not it. Sad

Use what I've told you to research more about FTP. Then again you could have tried PASV? I can't teach FTP use here. But if you look on google you find all the details.

Again. Use PASV.
