I have looked all over and I am sorry if this is a double post somewhere.
I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine that sits behind a Cisco ASA. It has the latest patches and all Windows firewalls are OFF.
I went through the FTP site setup wizard and assigned the IP address to servers static IP (ex. 10.4.2.1) and gave it a host name of ftp.example.com. I set the appropriate folder location as well.
I have it set for Anonymous access and have a user/password setup for the Anonymous access account.
I restart the server from IIS Manager and then ping ftp.example.com and I get the server local IP, as I should since I am internal
When I open IE on the server and go to ftp.example.com it says it cannot connect. I have done this on other servers in the past, and it has always connected and should connect on the local network.
I need it to prompt for user credentials, for example if I go to our other site, ftp.example.fr in France, I am prompted with a login window.
I cannot for the life of me figure why it will not connect, on a local network, to the ftp site I created.
I hope I explained this well enough. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
