ftp.efnet.info active vs. passive

Postby Hwy » Thu Mar 18, 2004 4:38 pm

It appears that using PASSIVE mode FTP does not function with ftp.efnet.info. This of course can cause problems for people that cannot use ACTIVE mode FTP. Because of this, I'm unable to browse the FTP with Mozilla or download behind my firewall at home, unable to browse with Mozilla at work, and unable to download or browse when I use passive mode from my colo.

From a site I know is not restricted:

Code: Select all

ftp> passive
Passive mode on.
ftp> bin
hash200 Type set to I
ftp> hash
Hash mark printing on (1024 bytes/hash mark).
ftp> get csircd-1.14.tar.gz
local: csircd-1.14.tar.gz remote: csircd-1.14.tar.gz
ftp: connect: Operation timed out


Note I tried this multiple times, it was not a one-time freak occurrence.

After switching to active mode:

Code: Select all

ftp> passive
Passive mode off.
ftp> hash
Hash mark printing on (1024 bytes/hash mark).
ftp> bin
200 Type set to I
ftp> get csircd-1.14.tar.gz
local: csircd-1.14.tar.gz remote: csircd-1.14.tar.gz
200 PORT command successful
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for csircd-1.14.tar.gz (181845 bytes)

Any chance this could be fixed?
