Q: ftp not working on windows 7

I have windows 7 and cannot access any ftp sites, instead I get the message, "425 can't open data connection." I checked the advanced settings on my firewall and all of the firewall options are disabled. Which ones should I enable to be able download items from reputable websites, and which should I enable to be able to upload to reputable websites without leaving me exposed to others?



I had the same error 425.  My FTP script file was being run by Scheduled Tasks.  I found that using the FTP -a option fixed the problem for me.  Hope this helps someone.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
