Error when connecting to remote FTP site

When I try to connect to a remote FTP server, I get the following below:

[root@oratest1 ~]# ftp
ftp> open
(to) IPADDRESS
Connected to IPADDRESS.
220 ftp.remote-hist.com X2 WS_FTP Server 5.0.4 (2840694631)

ftp> ls

421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
Passive mode refused.  Turning off passive mode.

How can I avoid this?
Thanks,

By running typing passive first this will return, passive mode off and allow an active connection.
