Wanting to place my hosted web on my server

    Actually, FYI, the control channel port for FTP is 21, however, the data
    transfer channel uses port 20. When allowing FTP through a router/NAT, and
    selecting the predefined FTP setting, then it is assumed to open these two
    ports.

    PASV mode is good for firewall and routers where the server controls the
    channel. Make sure PASV mode is enabled on the client. If using IE, the
    setting is under the Advanced tab in Internet Options. If that doesn't work,
    (depending on what the firewall or NAT is allowing), try disabling it.

    Here are more sites on PASV vs Active:

    How about your website, get it working?

    Oh yes, but left the default ports and used PW. I gave the examples briefly
    but yes I did try various combinations of ports set up in the router
    firewall but it seemed like it just didn't want to work. Actually that is
    why I went looking for sites like those you mention. I was not 100% sure if
    IIS changed both ports - ie 21 Control and Control-1 or just left it at 20
    so I had 21 and 20 open 2100 and 2099 etc but although I got to the site I
    got no data. Of course there could be other reasons (never rule out
    stupidity) but that was when I heard the suspicion about "Some" routers.

    That's your FTP site, I meant if you got your website working.

    If you didn't see any folders in FTP, did you setup a home folder?

    What's going on with your website?
