Can SmartFTP function side by side, with a software firewall?

SmartFTP is compatible with all major software firewalls products. SmartFTP has been tested with Windows Firewall, Zone Alarm, Kerio Personal Firewall, Norton Persona Firewall and many others.

If you are having problems connecting add SmartFTP to the exceptions of your firewall.

Tip: If you are having connection problems such as listing directory contents when using SmartFTP in conjuction with a software firewall, try enabling the "Passive Mode" option.
