Hi there,

Yes, unfortunately I have exceptions enabled.... Looks like this may be an MS Problem as Nick has stated. Thanks for your help :)

Hi there list,

I have come accross something that I am not sure how to tackle.
I have Windows XP (as do many of my clients) and have noticed something strange. When trying to access my server(s) via FTP, when Windows (XP Pro) Firewall is turned on, you cannot perform this task. Sometimes it has problems resolving the hostname, sometimes it just doesn't connect at all. When disabling Windows Firewall FTP works fine, however when just enabling FTP Access via the firewall configuration it doesn't seem to want to work. My XP using clients seem to be having the same problem. I could ask all of my XP using clients to just disable their XP Firewall when uploading their websites via FTP, but I don't think the more savvy customers would appreciate doing that (they are smart enough to realise what it means to disable a firewall on todays internet). My question to the list is, does anyone know how to correctly configure XP Firewall to get around this issue, or is disabling the firewall the only way? I would like to include this in my FAQ, so the easier workthrough the better.
THanks guys and gals!

Kindest of regards,

My apologies if this is "under you", but where you've turned on the firewall in the security centre, have you got the "Don't allow exceptions" box ticked?

Just a thought.

Good luck.
