Disable the stateful FTP

Using the FTP service on a server behind a firewall creates a set of challenges because of the way FTP works.


Sometimes, if using FTP & Cloud Actions with a regular FTP or an encrypted FTPS connection, Task may fail unexpectedly with a Lost connection. Disconnected from server error message. Most likely, this happens due to firewall settings. If StatefulFTP option is set to Enable, this may be a cause of the problem. To see current firewall settings, use the following command:

netsh advfirewall show global StatefulFTP

Global Settings:
StatefulFTP                            Enable

Fix connection problem

To fix FTP connection problems, simply use the following command:

netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFTP disable


To verify new configuration, see firewall settings again, by entering netsh advfirewall show global StatefulFTP command again:

netsh advfirewall show global StatefulFTP

Global Settings:
StatefulFTP                           Disable
