I had no problem with Avast Pro, using frontpage ftp to upload web pages.  but IS5 will not allow it unless i disable the firewall.  HELP.  i have already set frontpage to full access in the firewall settings, but it is ignoring me.   i cannot turn the firewall off everytime i want to upload pages. that is too dangerous.  what is wrong?


(XP computer, IS5 recently purchased.   Pro worked better)

Hi, for FTP the application have to have access for both incoming and outgoing connections (unless the client is using FTP passive mode - which I don't know is possible to configure in Frontpage). In airport mode, all incoming connections are blocked - so if FTP active mode and Airport mode are used together, it will not work.
