I am a complete freshy at this, so forgive my lack of understanding.
Basically, I have set up an ftp site on windows server 2008 r2, set the name as "ftp.myname.com". Now i have managed to get it it up and running, but I cannot access it via "ftp://ftp.myname.com", instead i have to use "ftp://my_machine_name".
Well my_machine_name is also the name of the web server (correct me if I am wrong), as evident in IIS Manager, so is that taking precedence or something? Why? I followed this tutorial exactly. How is it that he is able to connect to the ftp site using the name?
