I recently reinstalled windows in preparation for a new school year and I can't connect via FTP to my web server.
It's a fresh Windows 7 install (64-bit Ultimate) and the only thing I have installed is a legit version of the Adobe CS6 Master Collection and Filezilla, that's it.
I'm running Windows Firewall and both Dreamweaver and Filezilla have been added as trusted applications. I had to manually add them which seemed odd to me..I recall that in the past, when a program tried to access the internet, a dialog box popped up and prompted the user if it was okay to add the program as trusted.
I've installed all updates, and am running Microsoft Security Essentials. Also, I can ping my FTP server fine, but any connection requests in both FileZilla and Dreamweaver result in timeout errors.
'Resolving address of ftp.myserver.com'
'Connecting to 188.8.131.52'
and after like 20 seconds,
'Connection timed out. Could not connect to server'
Dreamweaver just has a progress bar and times out. I've tried passive/non-passive and nothing helps.
This is bumming me out, My background is in web design so not being able to upload files efficiently is killing my workflow. Any help in the matter would be appreciated
