There is an application at the client that executes a bat file that calls the built-in windows XP ftp.exe
at the command line. The FTP client can log in and change directories, but it cannot list directories or download files. The FTP client freezes and then the connection is closed.
If the user uses a gui like FileZilla, they can do all operations. This problem has been reproduced on 2 other machines within the network. This FTP server can be accessed from other network locations without a problem. The FTP server location uses IP address filtering for security, and they have claimed that our IP address is white-listed.
No software firewalls on turned on, windows XP firewall is off, and the linksys router has been checked an no strange settings or restrictions are on it.
Why would FileZilla work and not FTP.exe
. Is it the passive feature? Is there a way to toggle this in the command line? We do not want to change the way the application works because of this network issue.
