FtP cannot get a directry listing on different port
Posted on 2007-10-08
I have setup multiple ftp sitess on my server (windows 2003 enterprise server). I am behind a cisco router. my normal ftp site on port 21 works fine. I set up the other port to use 200. On my router I have the lines for ftp and ftpdata setup. I also opened port 200. I can log into the ftp site fine, but cannot get a diretory listing. It is doing a command PORT 192,168,2,101,15,175 and the response is invalid port command and then I get error cannot retrieve directory. I am using filezilla, but the command line ftp also hangs when I try a dir. I also tried passive with filezilla, but that did not help either. Do I need to open some other port on my cisco? Also, if I connect up through a vpn uning a local ip, everything works fine.
