Hello, I am unsure whether this has been mentioned before, however I noticed something peculiar happening with my FTP client. I tried to connect to my webserver using SFTP / SSH, through port 22 and a secure connection, and everything went smoothly. I then tried to connect to the same server through standard FTP port, 21, and I was receiving a response proclaiming my request could not reach the server. I tried everything possible, but had forgotten about ESS and its beta stage...Finally, I switched the firewall from Automatic to Interactive mode and created a rule allowing my FTP program full communication from / to external servers in port 21. This didn't work. I have to completely disable filtering and then connect to the server, otherwise, despite rules being in place etc, it will never let me connect. My operating system is Windows XP Home SP2, using standard ESS beta, and FTP program mentioned is Globalscape CuteFTP 8 Professional. On a sidenote, I was a lurker in those forums for a long time - I'd like to extend my thanks to all ESET people for their excellent products and support!
