XP Service Pack2 - Firewall not allowing exception

  montyburns 12:19 28 May 2005

I'm running XP with SP2

Using 34sp for a forum site and SmartFTP to manage the files

Can't log-on to 34sp unless I disable the firewall completely - which defeats the object of having it. Also means I have to remember to reactivate it

I have SmartFTP in my "exceptions" list, but it's not making any difference

Any ideas appreciated

Accidentally fixed!

Removed SmartFTP from the list of exceptions

Used it again

There it was back - and working!
