ftp problem

  tnelis 14:57 07 Jan 2007

Help please, if you can.
I can't connect to an ftp site to update my f-secure. click here

I can surf the www ok but not ftp.

I have windows xp pack2.

Many thanks.

Your link takes me to an update download site. Is that what you are trying to do?

Certainly looks a little suspect to me; I'm willing to help if this is a legitimate issue, but any link to what is apparently an 'Anti-virus' update certainly sets alarm bells ringing.

This is completely kosher...I asked f-secure to help me and they sent me this link, but my system refuses to connect to the ftp site...so how do I correct my computer please?

Do you get a warning message, IE cannot connect message, etc. I am reluctant to click on Run or Save, do you get that option?

  tnelis 18:24 07 Jan 2007

Yes, I can click on run or save....then it struggles to connect and eventually says connection timed out.

that the updater on the anti virus program should update itself if you have it set up. That way no mistakes are made.

Are you using a firewall?

If so, in Internet Explorer, click on Tools\Internet Options

Then, click on Advanced

Scroll down and check the box for Use Passive ftp....

That may help.

Works now, many thanks to fitshase and others.

Must apologise for being sceptical tnelis, but one can't be too careful these days. Glad you solved your issue.
