I want to use the FTP server on windows 7. I enabled IIS and FTP, configed the FTP site in INETMGR. From the Win 7 PC itself, I can login to the server as "ftp localhost". Problem is, from another PC on my local network, I cannot FTP to the Win 7 FTP
I have disabled the firewall on both PCs. I can ping the ip address of the FTP server PC, but running FTP 192.168.3.37 gets me nothing.
When I look at services, the Microsoft FTP Service is started. So is RPC and DCOM server process launcher.
I started to read about giving ApplicationPoolIdentity access to the Inetpub and Ftproot directories, but that got confusing real fast.
What could be going wrong? Is there a checklist to follow to enable a Win7 PC to act as an FTP server?
