I have a newly installed PIX 501 that is working (finally).  The last thing I'm having trouble with is ftp.  I use port 2121 for ftp.  When I ftp i get prompted for username and password.  I enter in the information and then get an error that says "the connection with the server was reset"  I have tried this with passive on, and with passive off.  Still the same message.  I'm running kiwi syslog and this is the output.

From where are you testing the ftp server?
Are you testing it from a machine directly connected to the Internet?
You know you cannot test it from another machine behind the same PIX?

I'm at the office connecting back to the house.  I turned off passive, and directed it back to port 21 and its working.  I think it might be the settings in the ftp server.

Could it be a firewall issue at work?

I dont think so because it was working fine before i installed the PIX at the house.  I did test something.  I was able to login to the ftp server and look at the files.  I was even able to download some files, but when I try to upload it wants me to enter in username and password again and again and again.........  It will never upload the file.  I started and ftp program (flashfxp) and was able to upload and download just fine.  Not sure what the deal is??

I can't see how the PIX could be causing that as you can connect and establish a data connection. Can you turn on logging on the ftp server so you can see all the commands and responses to it.
