FTP LIST command returns 425 error: "Unable to build data connection: Network is unreachable"
Posted on 2004-08-23
My hosting provider does not allow Passive FTP, and I've been connecting using Active/Port well.
However, the last times I tried to connect to the server, it connects successfully, but whenever there is a LIST command, the server returns error 425 "Unable to build data connection: Network is unreachable"
I've tried disabling the firewall but the results were the same.
I contacted my provider and was told that nothing had changed in the server and that they, with an outside connection, were able to connect successfully.
I've tried using the browser, command-line FTP and several FTP clients without success.
I googled for this and found someone saying to turn on passive mode, but my server doesn't allow it.
What can I do?
