SP2 and FTP - problems!

I am well aware that certain programmes will not work after installing SP2 - like, for example, my FTP Client.

I am not able to send files to my websites unless I disable the Microsoft firewall - even though under the firewall exceptions I have added WS_FTP95LE.

Of course, I am able to send using my own Sygate Firewall without any problems.

Any suggestions here please?

I have tried to create the windows ftp using this posting from senior member aspdaddy from February 23, 2002:

If you are using windows you can just do this:

Right click create new shortcut, enter path:

ftp://username:passworrd@www.yourdomain.com

Click Finish then double click and drag files onto the server.

A simple ftp solution.

Without much success on my part I'm afraid.

So maybe the answer would be to disable the Microsoft Firewall and use my own?

If you need to upload in a hurry, just type in ftp://yourdomain.com in IE

You'll be prompted for a username and password.

Navigate to the required folder and drag the required files to it (copy and paste might work - never tried it).

It's also worth noting that passive ftp must often be selected (IE properties¦Advanced). Also ftp in XP can be very slow to connect (30 seconds is typical if it's in a bad mood).
