ftp clients all giving problems

slackie asked
I am using win 2k with sp2, dx8, iis5 etc ... I have 3 separate ftp clients which i use to up and download files with.

Every time I log into a ftp server, and try to view the folders in a directory, it hangs there for ages. If I try and upload a file it looks like it is going through the motions, and doesn't do anything. no error message either. These are servers I have uploaded to before.

Any ideas?

Have got the ftp clients turned on to passive transfers.  Try turning this off.  It sometimes works.


That just boggled me. I was ready to re-install my os. Thanks so much. You saved me from certain death :)
