FTP Service for IIS: client connection times out on LIST command

The Problem

You installed the FTP Service for IIS, but after connecting clients time out on list command:

“Error: Connection timed out”

“Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing”

The Solution

Step 1: Verify Firewall exceptions are defined correctly:

Step 2: Disable stateful FTP filtering (see here):

netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFTP disable

Step 3: Restart FTP Service

net stop ftpsvc

net start ftpsvc

Good luck!
