Norton blocks FTP: Filezilla

Hey,

i installed Filezilla and wanted to connect to my FTP, but i got a "unable to connect".

Filezilla was allowed to connect to the internet.

 

I turned off the firewall for 1 min and then it worked immediatly.

 

So i deleted the entry from Filezilla at the firewall settings and retried it. Same problem.

The log file only tells me filezilla wants to connect to the internet. (Nothing else blocked?)

 

someone got an idea?

Pls try this

Open firewall settings, and change the firewall rule to allow instead of auto for that program.

It sud solve ur problem.

Hi Lhaard,

 

Could you tell us which Norton Product and version you are using?

 

I don't see that mentioned here.

 

Thanks.

Hi Lhaard,

 

In an earlier thread regarding the firewall settings you mentioned "manual". Do you mean that you created a custom rule for FileZilla or just set it to "Allow" in the drop down box?

 

Thanks.

What  version of NIS2009?  Interesting since I use FileZilla all the time and do not have a problem.  What do you mean by "manual not on auto"?  I do not see that as a firewall setting labeled manual?

Hi dbrisendine,

 

You are correct that there is no "manual" Firewall setting(at least not in 16.2). I was hoping for a clarification on that.
