Good morning,

We use Novell FTP server on a 6.5 platform, basically if the server hides behind a NAT, the clients that use FTP must be in active mode. Is there any way that we can force IE to use active?

    In IE go to Tools>Options and select Advanced tab on top. Disable "Use Passive FTP" and see if it solves your problem. If it doesn't you also can try by clicking "Enable Folder View for FTP sites" under the same list.

    Good Luck!
