Hi, I think I understand this issue but it has not come up before and I could use a refresh of my memory. I thoroughly understand how passive vs. active FTP works but I want to make sure about this issue. I have a client that is trying to connect to one of my Solaris 8 FTP Servers using active mode and the client is getting connection errors. As far as I am concerned, this would be a client side firewall issue or client side ftp software issue and that there is nothing I can do on the Solaris 8 server side??? Thanks for any help you can offer.
