comment I have two identical TeamViewer IDs on my 2 MacBooks
@poc That sounds really weird. Have you tried contacting their support team? This sounds like a massive bug to me (potential security issue as well), considering the actual hardware isn't identical.

@Muteking Then something blocks Filezilla (Firewall?) or there's some configuration problem.

FTPS isn't really FTP, it's more like a standard SSH session. Both protocols aren't compatible/exchangeable with each other. An online tool for port scanning won't help with determining outgoing traffic though.

The screenshots are fine, don't get me wrong, I just had the impression that you had more work with them than necessary.

comment Does multitasking while transferring a huge amount of data corrupts the file?
@AthomSfere Yes, true, I wanted to use the analogy of the street having just x lanes, where you'd get a small traffic jam the more things the warehouse has to process at the same time, but actually having a limited amount of workers shared between all tasks might be even better. :)

Testing outgoing ports is trivial, but you'd have to tell us the operating system you're using.

DO NOT use port forwarding if you'd like to access external services. That's a very bad and misleading advice unfortunately often given by support staff as well. And to add it won't even solve the problem. Port forwarding is important if you'd like to provide a service (like a FTP server). If you open a port - especially a common one - without actually using it, you're just opening one possible attack vector for malware trying to use that port for its own communication.

For easier screenshots in the future: Just hit the "Print" key, which will put your current screen contents in your clipboard to be pasted in your preferred image editor.

Unlikely I guess. Even if there'd be some malware in the beginning, the flash tool would still try to start at it's hardcoded address (which would be 0). Have you tried saving your current BIOS image to a file? If you do so, is that file the same size as the new one? If not, add that information to your post.

comment Is it safe to use a remote etc/hosts file?
Ah, OK. So these don't have any NetBIOS names you could use either? Maybe talk to your IT regarding this issue?

Check the DHCP's documentation. If the DHCP server is a Windows host, then you should be able to modify the server's hosts file and be fine.

Can't you just use your actual DHCP to propagate the proper names? Are there that many different ones for the same IP(s)?
