I am having a problem with my firewall. When I try to have people connect to my FTP, they are unable. What I thought would fix this, is was grabbing their IP from them and telling my firewall to allow all traffic from that IP through, but it did not really work. 1 out of the 5 people I did this for was able to connect. I have gone through all the settings and have found nothing to help me out. To make sure it was the firewall causing the problem, I turned it off and was able to have people connect to me.

I don't have the Blackice firewall so I can't be much help with it but I'm wondering if you have checked if your version is one of those affected by the Witty Worm?

It doesn't look like this worm could cause the problems you describe so please feel free to ignore this post if you don't have the affected version or have already installed the 'fix'.

Glad to have been of assistance.

Presumably you have not seen any signs of the random hard disk overwrite that this worm is supposed to be capable of?
