FTP issue with CuteFTP and Citrix

Posted on 2006-05-31

I am able to connect with my pc to a certain ftp site and this log shows that the connection is successful but..
if I try the same setup on my Citrix session the connection fails.  Any ideas?   I am putting the log file from the pc and the Citrix session (if that helps)

PS - I was able to connect to other ftp sites in my Citrix session and it works fine.

Here are the logs:
            *** CuteFTP 6.0 - build Nov  3 2004 ***

Any help would be appreciated.

    it seems that connection is timing out.

    Try doing a simple test.

    on Command prompt.

    telnet 21

    this should show message on screen.
    220 ftp01 FTP server (Version X Tue Dec 16 15:22:32 CST 2003) ready

    If you can see this, you are able to connect to the FTP server.

    It just hangs in DOS on Citrix.   It works on the pc.

    I am having the ower of the ftp server to see if their firewall is blocking my citrix address.

    That was the problem.

    It seems, your firewall was accepting the connection initially but dropping it after verifying the ACL.
