Windows 7: Windows Firewall and IE or Firefox FTP

Windows Firewall and IE or Firefox FTP

Hello to everyone.

Does anyone know how to configure the built-in firewall to allow IE and Firefox for Passive Outbound FTP access Port 21?

Currently, all Outbound without rules are set to Deny. Current rules for IE/Firefox set to Allow/TCP 80 and 443/Any IP.

Cannot seem to get the Elevated Command Prompt with the "netsh advfirewall firewall" commands to allow FTP access for IE and Firefox to work.

Thanks,
Robert
