  • Can connect to FTP locally, but not remotely.

    Oct 20, 2017 06:49 PM|AaronVT|LINK

    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:

    ftp localhost
    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.
