Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

On a vista pro, I activated ftp server with "Activate or deactivate Windows-functionality" > IIS (rough translation). I can't connect to ftp even in localhost:

C:\...> ftp localhost
Connection refused

Port 21 is not opened:

C:\...> telnet localhost 21
connect failed

$ netstat -a | grep 21
no result

Where to look at to find a hint?
