15:FTP PassivePortRange metabase access failed

The IIS File Transfer Protocol (FTP) service enables the web server to be a FTP server. 

Event 15 is generated when an attempt to read PassivePortRange, a metabase property under the FTP service node mentioned in the message, fails.

How could you resolve this situation?

In passive mode, IIS 6.0 FTP randomly responds in a default port range of 1025 to 5000. You can also choose custom values (either a specific value or range of values) for PassivePortRange. Ensure that the value is between 5001 to 65535.  

We can help you simplify log management and improve your organization's security with EventLog Analyzer.
