How do I setup an FTP server on windows 2003 server (please walk me through) - Page 4

post #31 of 34
Whenever i forward only port 21, I have had problems. Port 20 is usually used to setup the connection, and 21 for the transfers. Things may have changed though.

Should I use windows or can someone recommend me one?
You can set up filezilla to secure the connection using explicit SSL. Use the filezilla client to make it very easy.

Also ensure you set the client to use Passive mode.

There is a specialty case in which you need this port 20?
The difference is active vs. passive FTP. Active, the way the protocol was originally designed to operate, requires two ports. Passive, which all modern clients support, can be set to use only port 21.

Its safest to use both ports, but technically it isn't required provided you know what you're doing when you set up your client.
