Could it be possible my router is not compatible using FTP with Vista? I have
tried everything and exhausted all my options. I have tried Windows Explorer
method, CuteFTP, FlashFXP, Bullet Proof FTP, Passive mode, active mode,
checking and unchecking the boxes in the Internet Explorer. None of these
methods seem to work. I just keep timing out of the FTP. This is what I got
ERROR:> [2/19/2007 1:05:46 PM] Can't read from control socket. Socket
error = #10060.
ERROR:> [2/19/2007 1:05:46 PM] Failed to establish data socket.
I know for a fact that when I use Windows XP, FTP works fine, my router
works fine and I know that these FTP websites I'm trying to access work fine.
However, when I do a direct connection to my modem Vista can access the FTP
sites but when my PC is connected to the router it can't access the FTP sites
and times out or gives some kind of data error. I have tried to port forward
port 21 and every other port I can think of that needs data transfers. I have
disabled all firewalls that are installed including Windows Firewall and the
built in firewall in the router. Nothing seems to work. The only thing that I
can think of is it's an incompatability problem with either Vista or my
router the Asus WL-500G Deluxe. If anyone else has any options I'm willing to
try it. Otherwise nothing only HTTP works and FTP does not work in Vista for
me. I have no options left to try.
