Publishing to FTP: Cannot open data port

If you get an error while publishing to your FTP server that says something along the lines of;

Publishing Error

EverWeb could not connect to port: XXXXX

This means that your firewall on your router is changing your FTP port numbers. If you know how to configure your router's firewall, you need to allow it publish on the port indicated in the dialog box.

Otherwise, you should email your web hosting provider and ask them to open the port indicated in the dialog box.

Alternatively you can also try toggling the 'Use Passive FTP connections' mode connection EverWeb's Preferences under the 'Publishing' tab.
