I’m working with some good folks at Microsoft to resolve the photo publishing problem I wrote about the other day.
This is a test post from another computer, but over the same internet connection.
There is (or is not) my little test photo.
Initially the photo would post to the Blogger photo server (which I don’t generally use), but not to my server. I got this error:
(Publishing Error) A publishing error occurred: 200 Type okay.
227 Entering Passive Mode (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
150 Data connection accepted from xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx; transfer starting.
So I tried to post on my laptop, using an ATT wireless card.
It worked (there is the long awaited photo).
Which means the problem is caused by my network. Hmmm. Let’s see if it’s my computer or my internet connection. . .
Here’s another photo- this time I’m posting on my desktop, but using the ATT wireless card.
This also worked, which means that the problem resides in my internet connection, not on my computer, not in Live Writer and not on my web server.
I’ve narrowed it down, but I’m not sure where to go from here. I guess I need to look at the router settings.
When I disable my router’s firewall, the photos publish correctly. But I obviously don’t want to permanently disable my firewall, so I need to configure my router to allow Live Writer to publish these pictures. It’s odd that Live Writer can publish the text of the post (via Blogger) but not photos. It’s also odd that I can publish photos via an FTP client, but not via Live Writer.
