FTP 501 ip address for data destination doesn't match client

by medlabdx / April 20, 2009 10:34 PM PDT

I have a problem on my network with one of our computers. I get an error "501 ip address for data destination doesn't match client's". It only happens on one computer and it takes several tries for it to connect to the remote server and several tries in order for us to download something, and again, this only happens on on PC in the network.
I've disabled the windows firewall, I have no current stupid antivirus software like McAfee or Norton that I know usually block this kind of traffic.
I'm running Win XP SP2, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Not Much Information There...

Operating system? Type of internet connection? FTP program being used?

A search of that error finds those using VMware machines should try changing the network connection from NAT to "Bridge"? Or...

If using FTP from a machine which doesn't have a correct IP address such as private network, try setting up the IP address correctly.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
