  • IIS5.1 FTP Error when trying to view in Windows explorer window

    May 17, 2013 03:34 PM|blackjack2012|LINK

    Hi... I am new to setting up an ftp server.  So I set up an ftp site on a virtual machine that is running Windows XP SP3 and IIS 5.1.  I was able to see the ftp server on my desktop same machine and the virtual machine.  It was working and I was able to read and write to/from the ftp server from my desktop.  However, it stopped working.  Now on the virutal machine I can startup a command prompt and run ftp and get a directory of the files that are on the site as an anonymous user no problem.  But on the virtual machine when I open a windows explorer window up and try to open the ftp://localhost I get an error.  The error says FTP folder Error: Windows cannot access this folder.  Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.  Details: the FTP session was terminated.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated ;-)
