IIS4 FTP refuses connections

By gcarmichael ·
I am running IIS4 with SP6a and IP directory security. I am getting clients that cannot connect. In the event log, I am receiving Event ID 8 with the following error:

FTP Server could not create a client worker thread for user at host <Host address>. The connection to this user is terminated. The data is the error.

I have the appropriate IP in directory security as being able to have access. Is there anything else I need to do? Thanks for the help.

Raise the number of connection. You might have a problem where you have a low number of connections. More connections are being used then there are clients connected. Let me know if this works for you

I've got my connections set to 100, but I don't usually have more than 10 connections at once. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

On the FTP client you can try setting the transfer mode to passive transfers. This will help if you are going through a firewall. Also check the number of simultaneous logins. What error message do the FTP clients get?

They are getting "Connection Refused". The number of simultaneous logins is set to 100, so it should be fine (not more than 10 connecting at once). The FTP server is in our DMZ on the network and the firewall is passing all requests for the FTP server.

I've seen this article, but it didn't seem to help. I am not removing the IP security from the server, so it really did not do much. I have installed the metabase editor and looked at the metabase myself and found nothing out of the ordinary.Again, thanks for the suggestion.
