FTP does not work with Java 7 on Windows 7 or Vista in NetBeans IDE 7.0.1, how can I fix this?



Windows 7 or Windows Vista users running the NetBeans IDE 7.0.1 and later on JDK 7 may experience FTP communication failure.


To establish an FTP connection, choose either of the options below:

  • Turn off the Windows firewall.
  • Configure Windows Firewall for a passive mode FTP server as follows:
    1. Open an Administrator command-prompt.
    2. Click Start > All Programs > Accessories.
    3. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
    4. Run the following command:
      netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=FTPService action=allow service=ftpsvc protocol=TCP dir=in
    5. Disable stateful FTP filtering so that the firewall does not block any FTP traffic:
      netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFTP disable
