IIS - FTP with passive ports

  • Web

After configuring my FTP server to accept passive connections (ports 10000-11000), I can not connect with filezilla:

Response: 200 Type set to I.
Command: PASV:
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (1,2,3,4,212,169).
Command: LIST
Response: 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection.
Error: Connection timed out:
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

As you can see it is trying to connect with port 54441 (212*256+169), nothing to do with what I configured. After a few searches on the Internet, simply restart the FTP service. At the command prompt, type

>net stop ftpsvc
>net start ftpsvc
