I was of the opinion that XP's firewall does not have outbound filtering features. However After an unsupported crash with a free firewall I have uninstalled, and am using XP's meantime, but XPs ICF has blocked my port access to my web space, easily sorted by switching it off prior to FTPing, but it is irritating that it blocks outward connections, anyone know how to configure XP to allow this FTP access? or should I buy a firewall system. If so which ? or recommend a freeware version other than ZA.
