Passive FTP with DSL modem

  airbornenot 13:42 14 Oct 2003

I have broadband access and Norton firewall on a single, non networked computer, using Windows XP Home (MS firewall is disconnected). In Internet Explorer - properties - Advanced tab, in the list of boxes, there is one which is annotated - "Use passive FTP (for firewall and DSL compatibility)". Should this box be ticked and if so why?
