ftp problem in windows

Hi ,

I am connecting to a linux server from my laptop running on windows xp with sp2 through ftp as I need to transfer some files to the linux server.

The connection is established perfectly but then no commands can be executed. even it does not fetch a simple directory listing from the server with the ls command.

the error flashed is " 425 failed to establish connection "
" 200 port command successful. consider using PASV"

Please tell me if any services need to be enabled in windows xp or else what the issue is and the solution for that

need help urgent please

Why not use PASV?

In reply to: ftp problem in windows

I won't write a tutorial on FTP but why not run ftp, then use the set pasv command prior to connecting?

The command is...

In reply to: ftp problem

set pasv

But I won't offer a tutorial on ftp. Too many for you to look over on the internet. As you changing settings, I can't begin to list what could be wrong. Common issues are firewalls and hijacked winsocks due to trojans or some P2P use. But those clues are slim to none so I offer just the needed command prior to you using the connect command.

Why not

In reply to: ftp problem in windows

Why not just use a graphical FTP program? Then you can tell it to use passive mode, and it will handle all the little details for you.

There are hundreds of FTP clients to choose from out there, so find one you like, and use it.

Turn off your Microsoft XP firewall

In reply to: ftp problem in windows

I had this same problem today. I could get the directory listing on some web servers but not others. Go to Control Panel, Security Center and you can turn off the firewall from there.
