When you stop the FTP site, all existing connections to the site are disconnected and new connections are denied. You can restart the site to resume accepting client connections.

  1. Open IIS Manager.

  2. In the Connections pane, expand the server node and click the Sites node.

  3. In the Sites list, select the FTP site that you want to start.
