McAfee FW Blocks FTP Transfer

Hi All


My McAfee Total Protection was recently automatically updated to version 12.1.253 Personal Firewall is version 13.1.127 ever since the windows FTP client has stopped working. When I try to send put or ls commands despite the fact I can login to the FTP service on my ISP's webservers it just hangs. However if I disable the FW all is fine.


The following is an example of where it hangs:


ftp> ls

200 PORT command successful

150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list

<hangs here>


How can I fix this without turning my FW off?
