    Can't get the file list of friends FTP....

    Im trying to connect to my friends Win2k Server and I can connect using the account he created for me, and I can change drives (he's sharing multiple drives). The one thing I cant do is look at the list of files he has!!! When I type either 'dir' or 'ls' on the command prompt (using the ftp> command) its gives me this

    500 Invalid PORT Command.
    150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.

    Then the cursor just sits there. I then tried using WS_FTP and the same crap happens. Same port error. I tried turning off passive transfers in WS_FTP and it didn't do anything....why would something like this happen? I can connect and everything but otherwise Im stuck. I actually just tried to send something and it doesn't give me an error..it just doesn't seem to wanna send. WTF?!?! Strangeness indeed.

    If the settings on his server would help then tell me...as far as I know its a basic DOS listing setup on Win2k. One of my other friends who uses WinXP can connect fine. Im on Win2k Pro btw.

    Either turn on or turn off Passive transfer mode.

    Could you put the before line, too?
    I mean the line that appears before the 500 error?
    You can edit out some ip information from there

    Every website I found about the case suggested to turn ON the passive mode.

    //edit: One website suggested that you're trying to fxp and it's disabled (disallow transfer from third part host)

    fxp means server to server transfer. Which in turn means you're not uploading from the current host (your computer) but from a third party remote host (another ftp server).
    Most ftp serv programs have a setting to disable fxp transfers (those that don't originate from the host connected)

    I think we narrowed it down to my router blockin that port. He changed the default FTP port (21) to 90 on his FTP server. I could connect to the FTP but like I said before the file list would not appear. He changed it back to 21 to see if it would work and sure enough, it did. I dont know why he wanted the port to be on 90 but if he keeps complainin about it and wants to change it back...do I have to setup some type of forwarding in my router settings?
