Firewall exceptions for Microsoft File Transfer Manager.

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Eric G. van der Paardt, Jul 13, 2006.

  1. I have my network very well locked down. Enough so that I am fairly sure it
    is what is causing all my beta reports just to sit in the 'Microsoft File
    Transfer Manager' dealy.

    Can anyone point me at protocol specs, or just more information, so I can
    actually contribute to the beta program?

    TIA

  2. Can't you just make a program exception in the Security Center/Firewall for
    the File Transfer manager? You should be able to browse for the program and
    add it to the list.

  3. I don't believe my problem to be the firewall on the machine, I'm certain
    that microsoft has thought of that. My problem is I have a big mean
    firewall sitting between my network and the internet, and it only lets out
    what I tell it too. So really I'm just trying to figure out what ports to
    open outward to let the "Microsoft File Transfer Manager" talk to the
    mothership.

  4. I don't know about MS 'thinking about it.' If you haven't seen how
    thoroughly locked down Longhorn Server is, you haven't seen locked down.
    Vista is pretty locked down and the FTP manager would be a big vulnerability
    point.
