I'm trying to connect to a Server 2012 IIS 8 FTP server using FTP in the command line of another Windows client. As soon as I try to transfer a file or list the directory, it hangs indefinitely... no error messages or time outs, no errors in the log. I have full control over both client and servers but can't get it working.
I can ftp to localhost when I'm on the server, but not from any of the clients outside the network. I CAN ftp using Filezilla client, just not from FTP in the command line... which is what I need to do so using anything other than the command line FTP is not an option.
This was working at one point but then stopped. I don't know why. I am the only user on this system (development) and I do not remember doing anything with IIS when it stopped. However, I have applied a number of Windows patches.
I've tried everything I could find in web searches:
- turned off the Windows firewall completely
- enabled/disabled stateful ftp
- configured passive ports in IIS and Firewall
- allowed "Everyone" in file permissions and ftproot
