Getting Winsock Error with WebEasy 8

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi, I am facing a regular Winsock error whenever I am trying to upload a new webpage package. I checked the Passive Firewall button and all the possible options, but still can’t get the source of error. For your information, my ISP is valid and fine for access through CuteFTP as well. Can anyone solve this strange problem of mine?
