Problem with FTP

I am trying to host an FTP using IIS with Win XP. I pass through a router in which I have enabled the port, although not 21 since my ISP blocks it, and I thought everything was properly set up in IIS. I get a connection when using WS-FTP Pro until it gets to the point where it tries to list the folder contents. It just hangs??? Same thing when trying to use IE to connect to the ftp site.

I presume you've port forwarded any firewalls you have and also allowed the server to access the internet. But what about putting your computer in the free fire zone? If you don't allow it the router may be using network address translation, allowing packets to be renamed and missed.

Does it do this on your network or just the internet?
