Default DW MX will not ftp under win7? - 04-05-2010 , 03:45 PM






After upgrading to windows7 my trusty Dreamweaver MX 6.0 works fine - except
for the FTP-function:

Test connection says "Succesfully", but when i try to transfer files - or
expand to doublesided FTP-window - it waits for server forever...

I have tried to turn the win firewall of, no result

I use CuteFTP instead - it works fine - but i miss the easy FTP i DW!

any ideas? Per*

DW FTP is too slow even when it works
WS_FTP Pro works like lightning
I'm using a copy from 2003 and quite happy.

Agreed - although Filezilla is a reasonable free substitute for Mac /
Windows.

Install a virtual machine with XP on it to support your 8 year old
software or update DW to a newer version.

Thanks to all:

Small fine-tunings of the firewall solved the problem!
