Thanks for the reply, i realise i can edit IIS to restrict the ports but i
still willl need about 2000 open to allow for this busy server. I started
the Aplication layer gateway but it made no difference. Passive FTP was
still blocked by RRAS. Do you have a link to a specific kbase related to
passive FTP and RRAS or anything that can help me? Thanks again.
