#12822 new Feature request

By default, Filezilla Server does not register any exclusions in Windows Firewall, cannot connect until exclusions added to Windows firewall

Operating system version: Windows 10.0.19045.2251


At install time, FileZilla Server does not register any exclusions in the Windows Firewall, so by default, it cannot perform its main role of acting as an FTP server.

Manually adding the program "C:\Program Files\FileZilla Server\filezilla-server.exe" to the Inbound rules in Windows Firewall will fix the issue, but the program really should be doing that at install time.

Hi, I think too that it would be handy to let Windows allow ftp trough the firewall.
I did not have one on Windows 11, by doing a fresh install with "FileZilla_Server_1.6.1_win64-setup.exe"

As an example, this is what Baby FTP does when it starts up:
