Can't FTP into Azure VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Server 2012 r2 VM running FTP in the preview portal. I can access FTP via localhost on the VM itself so I know FTP is running. But I can’t get in externally.

    I followed this article to configure the passive FTP ports in IIS. The article lists steps to create endpoints in the old management portal, not the preview portal, so I created a NSG attached to my NIC and added an inbound security rule that opens the same port range that I configured in IIS. However, that’s not working. I’ve previously successfully done this on a VM in the old portal but I’m obviously missing something here. Any ideas?

  • Hello Jason,

    Thank you for contacting us.
    I would also recommend to have a look at instance-level IPs, which will make the passive FTP able to use the full port range:


    Please let me know if you have any queries.
