    Windows XP Home SP2
    Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall
    Cute ftp

    I don't know what has changed or how it got changed, but now when I open Cuteftp it makes Kerio firewall start creating new purple shields across my task bar,Cuteftp blinks, and everything slows down. There is 100% cpu usage until I open Windows Task Manager, then it eventually gets under control and goes to 3 or 4%. When I open Windows Task Manager to see if I can see what's going on, whichever process I click on also begins to blink. Pointing the mouse at the row of Shields causes them to disappear, but they return, one by one. It's like a process is going that I haven't started.

    I think the problem is in how I have the firewall configured. I really have no clue as to what to allow, not allow, or to be asked. Ftp is especially delicate because it's so easily used by outsiders if it's not protected well.

    Could someone tell me what should be Permitted, Denied, or Ask, for a safe FTP? And is ftp a trusted zone or an internet zone?

    I'm supposed to upload a monthly ezine tonight but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. Always sumthin, hey? :rolleyes:

    Thanks for any help

    Hello T-Bone

    I have the full paid Ver 4. In the 'About' it shows Ver 4.3 I have the CD if that will help.

    Thank you for your reply.
