ERROR:> Failed to establish data socket

Post by gnosis3d » Mon Jan 15, 2007 7:15 am

I am using CuteFTP to access my Cerberus FTP Server. It gives me the following error after it has connected with the correct login/pw.

STATUS:> Retrieving directory listing...
COMMAND:> PASV
227 Entering Passive Mode (209,192,46,34,4,7)
COMMAND:> LIST
STATUS:> Connecting data socket...
ERROR:> Failed to establish data socket

The weird thing is, I can access the FTP server via ftp.exe manually. I have transfered a file, listed directories, etc.

Why is it that an FTP client cannot access it, yet I can via command prompt?
