Configure hardware firewall or proxy settings

Many companies utilize a hardware firewall and proxy server that can prevent Dreamweaver from accessing an FTP server.

You would need to check where the traffic is to and from. Source and destination ip addresses would be a good start to troubleshoot the issue. And also check what port it is using. Have you check the ACL?

On the interface access-list, you would need to permit TCP/21 for FTP control port. If you already have default policy-map configured, it should already have "inspect ftp" configured. Is it using the normal FTP port?

"inspect ftp" is in firewall.


Whenever the user try to use Adobe Contribute and it says unable to connect to the network, even though internet connection is working.

Also, if you have a CSC module see if the ftp failure relates to FTP on the module. For example if you disable FTP scanning on the module (if you have one) does the transfer work?
