I cant access any FTP Sites when the Firewall of Windows (SP2) is on.
I have allready tryed to open Port 21 TCP, and also open in the advanced tab
for both network adapters (the internet ADSL and local network).
When I try to cnnect It allaway get waiting to the server, and 60 second
later it get disconected, Saying that cant conect to the server, and that
the time for the operation has been passed.
I have tested whit Dreamweaver FTP client and Download Accelerator Plus 5,6
also whit WebFolder in Windows Explorer.
This error doesn't get if Windows Firewall is OFF.

My PC:
Pentium 4 1,7 Ghz
256 MB Ram
Windows XP Pro (whit SP2 Installed)
Norton Antivirus 2005.
Modem ADSL USB Amigo CA85UR USB EndPoint.

Thanks for your help I am really desperate

Hi, Alberto -

If the FTP server is running in PASV mode it won't use port 21. Can you try
granting access to your FTP application instead of just opening the port?
Try this -

Click Start --> Control Panel and double-click Windows Firewall
Click on the Exceptions tab
Click the "Add Program..." button and then use the Browse button to
locate the programs that need firewall exceptions.

Hope this helps -
