  1. FTP Server External Connections & More


    Question 1: Connect Externally.

    How do I let other people outside of my network, a totally different IP, join my FTP server, and read and write on it?


    Question 2: Creating a user for an FTP server.

    Is there a way to create an account for an FTP server. Because whenever I try to login with a client, in this case, WinSCP, it needs me to fill username and password, I tried my computer's user's username and password, but that doesn't work, and how will external connection configure this? So now I can only use anonymous login. I am confused, I didn't even create an account. What do I need to do to fix it? Do I create an account in IIS Internet Information Services IIS Manager? If yes, how do I do it?


    Question 3: Establishing a secure connection on an FTP server.

    I heard that FTP servers are not as secure as most other kinds of servers are. So is there a way to make that connection secure through any kind of method.


    Question 4: Cipher all folders on that disk.

    Is there a .bat script that will cipher items on the disk, and each person who stored the file can open their own folder, and no one can store their data in other's folder, all this also applies to the server host. And it runs automatically whenever something gets stored on that disk, the script will be targeting all sub-folders of the main folder.


    *Note: I also used the certificate system, so do I and they need a certificate enable to log in and use the storage.

    :)

  2. Unable to establish an FTP connection

    I have been unable to successfully make an FTP connection to a server using an FTP client in Windows 10. With FileZilla, I get the error message

    "Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity

    "Could not connect to server"

    and with Cyberduck, I see

    "Connection failed

    "Connection timed out: connect. The connection attempt was rejected. The server may be down, or your network may not be properly configured."

    The connection is to allow me to manage a website, and I have done it many times, including I think from this Windows 10 computer.

    The Network Diagnostics in Cyberduck simply said:

    "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem"

    I’ve done the following

    • checked the Cyberduck and FileZilla settings and procedures against their help pages
    • contacted the webhost, who confirmed that there is no problem their end and I should have access
    • tested the connection for myself with www.net2ftp.com
    • contacted my broadband supplier, who confirmed that there are no issues with the router that may affect FTP
    • added Cyberduck and FileZilla to the exclusions in
      • Windows Defender
      • Malwarebytes
      • Windows Firewall
    I can’t think of anything else. Any suggestions?

    Unable to connect to Windows FTP Server


    Hi all. I'm hoping somebody can point in the right direction, or walk me through steps to troubleshoot this issue.

    I set up an FTP server on a windows 10 desktop using the built-in Windows FTP service capabilities.
    Everything was working fine.

    Today I attempted to access the FTP Server, both through a web browser and through file explorer, but without success.
    Through a web browser it times out, and through file explorer it prompts me for authentication but shows an empty root folder.

    So far I have done the following:

    *Reset all network settings using NetAdapterRepair1.2
    *Checked Windows Firewall settings - FTP allow option is checked
    *Checked that ESET firewall is NOT activated
    *Re-assigned the same static IP address from before running NetAdapterRepair
    *Checked port-forwarding rule on modem-router - set to FTP service with port 21
    *Checked system file integrity - SFC /scannow - no integrity violations
    *Checked the Windows 10 image - DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth - completed successfully
    *Checked the FTP settings through IIS manager - can't find anything wrong
    *Attempted to connect to the FTP server with all security apps turned off - ESET Smart Security, MBAM, MBAE, Windows and ESET Firewall -all turned off. Previously when all these were running I had no issue connecting to the server.

    It is important to note 2 things:
    1) Along with the FTP issue I can no longer connect to the computer in mention through windows RDP
    2) This all seems to have started after I made a mistake with the process of replacing a drive in my Windows storage pool. It has since been corrected. The FTP folder is located in a storage space within that pool. Locally all files and folders are accessible.

    Free atomic fireballs for whoever helps me solve this!
