Firewall blocks some downloads

by olisao55 In reply to Firewall blocks some down ...

most likely there are a good number of ports that are closed for outgoing traffic, and those need to be opened to download from some sites example: limewire 6300's. Some firewalls will have settings that will turn on or turn off common ports like the FTP port. Please post what type of firewall that you have installed. Some also have most outgoing ports blocked by default, some opened. Hope this helps.

If you are using IE 6, you can configure the browser to use passive FTP to allow you to download files... otherwise check with your firewall admin to make sure the FTP protocol (port 21) is enabled for your subnet, workstation, or location.

Hope this helps,
