FTPS - Yahoo changed FTP method to FTPS

Dear Experts,

Could you please advise do you have experience maybe with Yahoo that it changed the file transfer method from FTP to FTPS?

Basically I have tried already three third party tool to upload files, the FileZilla, Cyberduck, and the FireFox FireFTP, but all of them just reach until this point:

220-Welcome to the Yahoo! Web Hosting FTP server
220-Need help? Get all details at:
220-http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/webhosting/gftp/
220-
220-No anonymous logins accepted.
220-Yahoo!
220-Local time is now 02:11. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220 You will be disconnected after 5 minutes of inactivity.
       AUTH TLS
234 AUTH TLS OK.
       PBSZ 0

It says the TLS is okay so I would assume it went through so excluding any Windows Firewall issues, but from this point can not go further, can not see the files on my domain directory

thanks,

Can you post the log portion from doing a dir or ls?

One of the issues could be that when doing encrypted FTP firewalls can't see the PASV/PORT commands.  So if your firewall is setup to do dynamic policy's for the data connection, it will not work.

If doing passive data transfers, Yahoo may tell you what port range they use.  So you can setup a firewall rule to allow any of your internal addresses to connect to the Yahoo FTP server on those ports.  If they don't then you just need to allow your internal address to the Yahoo FTP server on any high port.

Sorry I am not sure where to give the dir or ls commands in FireFTP, my screen actually looks like this

In the bottom window where the command log is you can scroll down a little more and see what is going on.  In the bottom window you should see LIST as the command being sent, it should show up after the PBSZ 0.

Thanks, relating the scrolling I can not further, there the "PBSZ 0" is the last line.

Could you please have a short look on this attached state, the dir or ls commands are waited beside of that small Yahoo icon on the right side? Also, that small directory icon means that I am finally on the server? But in that case why can not browse on the directories, sure there are a lot of

Finally it has been solved..

I have just changed the password for Yahoo and after the FileZilla went through, so if anyone struggles with similiar and all settings seems okay, maybe just change the password and try it again.

Anyway not clear that it was cached maybe or something, but no firewall and security software modification was needed

Weird, but glad its working.  Could be they were requiring you to change it to make sure it was secure and they forgot to document that or it was hidden someplace.
