Trouble accessing ftp from windows server 2012R2

by sreejith_r_kurup / March 8, 2017 6:18 AM PST

I am having a strange issue like i am unable to connect any of the ftp sites from my Windows Server 2012 R2 server using Filezilla or any of the ftp clients. When i make a request through Filezilla I am getting the following error. "Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry...
Status: Connecting to 192.168.10.5:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error: Could not connect to server". Same ftp site when i try to connect from any other system in the same network its working as expected.
I have enabled all the ports required for ftp in firewall and also tried disabling the windows firewall.
Also I have disabled antivirus. All these things did not help. Any kind of suggestions or information would be appreciated.

Your clues don't tell me what. REMEMBER THAT SOME FIREWALLS REMAIN ACTIVE WHEN DISABLED. I found Zonealarm and others required I uninstall to truly disable them.

That out of the way, be sure to try passive ftp, On the FTP command line it's the old

set pasv

https://www.google.com/search?q=set+pasv finds this command and more so I pause here.

i am having a a windows server 2012 r2 server and a NAS ftp. I configures ftp server on NAS device and installed ftp client(Filezilla) on windows server. When i try to make the connection from this filezilla to the NAS ftp, I am unable to connect and gives error " Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry...
Status: Connecting to 192.168.10.5:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error: Could not connect to server.

Also I have tried one external ftp server from the same Windows Server and still i couldnt connect.
No ftp connections are happening from the server(Windows server 2012). I think you have understood my issue. Any kind of inputs are appreciated. Thanks.

I don't understand your issue. I have used ftp for decades but the clues here are just not here.

I can't tell if you used the few ideas I presented.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
