ftp/anarchie problem

when using anarchie 2.0.1 on a power computing power tower 180 (144M ram, sys7.5.3L, OT1.1, conflict catcher, dragstrip, etc.) to upload files to a remote anonymous server, anarchie reports errors (for instance: FTP server gave an error (-425) Can't build data connection: Cannot assign requested address.) This problem occurs after creating a directory on the server into which the files are to be placed. No other computer in this office experiences this....Windows95, PPC8100/80, PPC7200/120.  all connections are being routed via dial-up isdn through ciscopro1004 isdn modem. could this be a problem with power computing's architecture, or anarchie (or ftp) in general? is there a list of ftp errors which could be consulted? if so, where can it be accessed? tia for any clues!

I would first look at the application (FTP).  See if the settings of the other systems match this ones.  I'm mostly interested in passive mode vs. active mode FTP.

anarchie (and cuteftp) preferences and settings are concurrent within this office. these are active mode transfers.....perhaps i should have mentioned that this problem occurs at one site exclusively, e.g. immediately after erroring at the site in question, the errant pt/180 can then successfully complete mkdirs and puts on any other site that we commonly frequent. i must admit perplexity not only by this problem, but by the apparent lack of activity concerning my question. should i assign a higher value to this query?

Well, value is always worth more time in looking at a problem.. without saying of course you get what you pay for:-)  If this system can access everywhere you frequent then I would say it is a permissions problem at the server side.  If any other system can access the site without a glitch then the software may not be compatable with this brand of equipment.

Get Fetch and see if you have the same problem.  If so, its the server.
