Hi everyone, I'm new to this site. I was hoping someone could help me. I have IIS 5.0 installed on an internal 2000 server machine, hosting a ftp site. I can log into the ftp site and get to the home directory fine from within the iternal network, but when I try from home all I get is the microsoft flashlight that looks around for a minute and then a windows error box stating "Windows cannot access this folder. make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder" Details "The ftp session was terminated". I'm new to IIS and ftp sites, is there something I'm missing, I have the permissions set to grant access to all, and I have an anonymous login created...the login screen doesn't come up when I try to access the site from the internet...any help would be appreciated.

Make sure you allow connections from outside the network. Firewall software enabled, or the specific user account may be tagged to only allow from within the network.
