Issue

In Dreamweaver 4, the Firewall Port setting in Preferences can allow or prevent a connection although the Use Firewall (in Preferences) option is not checked in the Site Definition dialog box.

Reason

This is an error in version 4 of Dreamweaver.

Solution

Set the Firewall Port value properly in Preferences, even if you have not selected the Use Firewall (in Preferences) option in the Site Definition dialog box, as follows:

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences.
  2. Select the Site category in the Site Definition dialog box.
  3. Set Firewall Port to the correct value. In most cases, a value of 21 will be correct and will allow a connection.
