FTP MLSD command issues

Hi All,

I am having a very peculiar issue with FTP directory listing.
I have for 2 FTP servers both at the CLOUD,running FTP7 on one and Globalscape FTP service on another.
Because of the budget issues,we can't have the same FTP on both the servers.

When i am using SmartFTP or Filezilla,FTP 7 works fine for directory listing not the Globalscape?
it's a very important task to be done within couple of days,please someone help me to solve this problem.

PS:It works fine for ACTIVE Mode.

Here is the log info for both the servers.

FTP7 on TestWeb01
Globalscape on TestWeb02

That's my problem.
It's showing the directory listing for FTP7 not for Globalscape in the passive mode?

As I said it's in the Cloud.
The only disadvantage of having servers in the cloud is there is no centralised firewall system(yet!!).
We have to use server 2008 windows firewall to do the inbound and outbound connection.
Basically you have to create rules yourself.

We have created a seperate rules for fiezilla,smartFTP,EFT Server,EFT FTP and Globalscape all allow any to any.

One more thing the Virtual directories are pointing to DFS.

thanks again.

Hi,

Because someone already disabled the passive mode for the EFT Globalscape server when we upgraded the FTP server.Now everything seems fine.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
