Ah, okay, thank you, I tested it and it seems okay. Which I don't quite understand because I don't quite follow the blurb about using custom PASV settings if you're behind a firewall or NAT.
well I'm behind a NAT but I'm using default on that page and apparently connecting okay.
Sorry to appear so dumb with my first question - I was expecting something like ftp.somedomain.com and couldn't see what domain I'd be and so on...... didn't occur to me it'd be as simple as that.
I will go have a good look through your FAQ and such - I want to know which directory the user finds himself in when he logs on....... and what powers he has.......
you didn't mention if the MS semi install I did would interfere. I notice the ftp test got a "..reply 220 Microsoft FTP service" is that to be expected or does that mean I didn't connect to the filezilla service?
Yes, apparently it does. I went into IIS and tried to configure the 'message' and rename the service. Then I tried the tester. This time it failed. It said that it received a carriage return without a line feed and suggested I upgrade my server.
I went back and tried to undo the changes I'd made and ensure there were no carriage returns without line feeds (as though I could) but nothing I could do would fix it.
So now I guess I've got to figure out how to uninstall MS IIS FTP... and then I might be able to connect to filezilla ftp.... ?
