FTP Timing out
FTP with New Windows XP SP2

Ever since my Windows XP updated certain updates about 4 months ago I was unable to transfer my files,they kept timing out.I tried using FTP programs and they all had the same problem.I tried everything, disabling firewalls,Using Passive mode, Using Port Mode,Binary,etc... I have a second computer which runs Windows 98 and when I tried to to FTP it worked just fine and fast.There was a document about this on the internet about "packet loss" or something similiar and the information mentioned that the New computers had that problem unlike Windows 98.There was something I had to change but I forgot since I've lost that information.Does anyone have an idea of what I'm talking about, thanks:)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld sam678!

It sounds very much like you have the Windows XP firewall enabled. Try disabling that or any other firewall you may have in place and see whether the problem resolves itself.
