i'm running win98 that is connected to an ip-forwarding linux machine. the linux machine connects to the net using pppd and a usr 33.6 modem. http, icq and stuff works just fine, but when i'm connecting to an ftp-site i can't use the ls command. im connecting with the ftp command in dos and i can log in as usual, but wen i type ls this happens:
200 PORT Command successful
then nothing happens. i cannot se any files. its the same with differrent ftp-programs.
so, something is wrong with my linux machine, but what?

When using masq you need to load the ip_masq_ftp module on linux(insmod ip_masq_ftp), or use PASSIVE transfer. (Netscape and IE do that)
