I have a Windows Server 2016 machine with FTP Server role installed, an FTP site added, and FTP Server rules added in Windows Firewall. I can connect via FTP locally like via command line like this:
Connected to *redacted*.
220 Microsoft FTP Service
200 OPTS UTF8 command successful - UTF8 encoding now ON.
User (*redacted*:(none)): Administrator
331 Password required
230 User logged in.
However, when I try to connect to the server's IP address via FTP/SFTP it tries to connect for a while then the connection times out. Anything I might be missing? Thanks.

I figured it out. I had to create a rule to open port 21 in hosting account.

Yes, if you use VPS or cloud computing platform, there might be an external firewall you need to configure.
