I am trying to setup an FTP server for my home documents. I have a machine with Windows Server 2003 installed and setup the FTP in IIS with the home directory to my E drive which is a dedicated HDD for this share.
I was able to access it from the local host by entering
ftp://192.168.2.2 in the browser. When I try access this from my windows 7 PC on the same network I am not able to I get page cannot be displayed. I tried making sure the server's firewall had port 21 allowed as well as on my router. I tried an alternate
port of 50000 and still the same behaviour. I am wondering if anyone could help me figure out what is causing this?

Only opening one port is not enough for FTP (read those FTP articles to learn about its unique requirements on firewall rules, active mode and passive mode).
Depending on the mode you choose (passive typically), you will have to open more ports on the server side for data connections.
