After getting the information last week, I installed VM Fusion and Windows XP on my Mac as I need to connect to certain websites for work that would only work on Windows/ IE 6. Ever since I installed Windows and have been using IE 6, I cannot get connected to this ftp server that I need to access. I have played around with the settings in the Windows firewall by adding an exception and turning it off, but I still cannot connect. I was wondering if the fact that Windows is being run as a virtual machine on my Mac would have anything to do with connection problems? Does anyone have any thoughts or advice on this? Anything I can try? Already gone the route of tech support for the company that owns the server. They have gone through all kinds of troubleshooting and testing my ip to make sure it isnt blocked, but it seems I'm the only one who cant connect and I cant help but think there is something not right with Windows being installed on my Mac.
