I wasn't sure where I should post this topic, so I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to be asking this.
Here's my problem:
I'm trying to get a FTP server up using the built in FTP server in Windows XP.
There's a part during setup that asks me what port I want the FTP server on, and it works fine if I leave it at the default FTP port (21). However, if I try to change the port to sth else, it breaks and doesn't work. I get an error message saying:
FTP Folder Error
An error occured opening that folder on the FTP Server. Make sure you have permission to access the folder.
200 Type set to A.
227 Entering Passive Mode (xxx,xxx,x,xxx,9,59).
426 Connection closed; transfer aborted.
(the xxx's being a local IP address)
And yes, I am behind a router and have forwarded all the neccessary ports.
Also, when attempting to access the FTP Site from IE I type in ftp://xx.xx.xxx.xxx:<port>.
Thanks in advance for any help.
