    until days ago, i have been accessing internet from various wireless hotspots and have no problem uploading files to my FTP (using dreamweaver and coreFTP.) just started using cable LAN access and although internet works fine, it will not allow access to FTP through LAN connection. verified it was a problem with LAN by disconnecting from it and connecting via wireless and connecting to FTP no problem. the cablecastic ISP pawns the problem off on the web host, but they are understandably pointing back to the ISP.

    windows firewall settings for LAN no different than wireless. stumped, and not getting any feedback from the ISP.

    any ideas?

    Stumped the forum :)

    Found the answer, in case anyone else ever has this problem.

    If you are running Norton worm protection and are on a LAN connection, you need to go to options→internet worm protection→programs→add, then find alg.exe in the windows/system32 folder. It should be set to automatically configure internet access.

    This solves the problem and allows FTP to be accessed.

    Good luck!
