I had anonymous user FTP site using Server 2008 IIS 7.5. I am hoping to securing the server better I had before. I have a friend update files to and from the ftp site to update the web sites he creates for fun hosted on the server 2008 from his apple mac using a client ftp (not windows).

Recently i purchased a certificate from godaddy and I was hoping to create a secure ftp with using port 443 instead of 80 but I can not access the ftp site i created.

Please note IP address hosts many websites

Port 80 and port 443 are for HTTP and HTTPS traffic.... FTP uses 21 for the session and 20 for ftp data.

To secure ftp with a certificate is possible but the port will either be 21 or 990.

Have a look here for more information:

Perhaps this guide can assist you in setting up your site correctly:

Hope this helps.
