Re: Norton blocks FTP: Filezilla

with manual i meant i have turned off the "automatic programcontrol" (may not be the correct translation, i use the german version)

 

Filezilla is set on allowed - like on the pic posted ahead.

Re: Norton blocks FTP: Filezilla

Hi Lhaard,

 

Since acquiring Dreamweaver, I have not used FileZilla in quite some time (version 2.2.29).

 

Therefore I think it best to let dbrisendine assist you in this matter. There may be some settings in FileZilla which need to be configured.

Lhaard, I haven't used Filezilla but I imagine that it probably has an Active vs Passive FTP mode. If you change the mode to passive (or vice versa) does it help?

Re: Norton blocks FTP: Filezilla

Perhaps you might try deleting the rule for Filezilla and let it get recreated. Enabling Automatic Program control briefly might be a good way to recreate the rule too.

No, but did you remove the rule for the software when Automatic Program Control is on? Try deleting the rule for Filezilla with it on if you haven't already. If that doesn't work, there's more research for the staff to be done. There've been other software previously which wouldn't connect even with automatic program control, so your software is not alone, even if it's not a common problem.

[ Edited ]

i deleted the filezilla entry before i set in on automatic.

i think there is a program - i guess some systemprozess- that is blocked and therefore it doesnt work. 

maybe i test everyprogram or prozess

 

but if someone got another idea... please tell me

Re: Norton blocks FTP: Filezilla

I think your idea makes good sense, so go through the list of programs in Norton's FW looking for possible processes.

Re: Norton blocks FTP: Filezilla

Lhaard,

 

Can you connect to the FTP site through IE or your browser?  Does this get blocked also?
