How do I allow access to an FTP server?

I have a Canon  EOS7D camera with a wireless file transmitter WFT-E5A attached.   AVG Antivirus Business Edition has taken control of Windows firewall and is blocking the transfer of files to the FTP server on my computer.   If I disable the firewall, the WFT sends the files to a folder on my computer.   How do I configure AVG Antivirus allow the files to be received?

You need to allow to accept and receive TCP connections via port 21 and 20.

It is looking for an application.   I do not know what application allows the file transfer from the WFT to the folder on my computer.

The version I have has a slightly different interface, but I was able to follow your instructions and the camera now transmits the files correctly.   I am attaching a screenshot of the version I have.AVG

Thank you for providing a clear resolution to the problem.   I spent an hour earlier today on the phone with AVG tech support who had no idea how to solve it.   The technician was rude and most unhelpful.   I have to say that this is not a typical experience with AVG tech support.   They have always been very helpful l in the past.   Thanks again.
