FTP 7.5 Error Type 200 and firewall problems

When setting up FTP publishing using IIS, in Windows Server 2008 R2, you cannot connect to the FTP server - it usually times out or your FTP client displays FTP error 200 Type Set 1 or 200 Type set A or similar. Follow this simple guide to get it working.

It is most likely caused by the Windows Firewall - temporarily disable the Windows Firewall and retest FTP connectivity - if it works then action the following command on the Server:

Step 1: Enable the Windows Firewall and run a command prompt Window as an Administrator

Step 2: paste the following command without the quotation marks: "netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFtp enable"

Step 3: Press Enter and you should get an OK.

Retest FTP connectivity - this should solve it. If you are still having the same issue please feel free to join our forums where other members may be able to assist you or contact us and we will be happy to fix this remotely.
