I don't think there is any way to control that from the BAT file.  Can you tell me a little more about what you are doing, perhaps there is a different approach.

I have thousands of clients/Users that access my ftp sites.
they keep calling the office saying about issues accessing the ftp, and the answer and solution is the same.,
Open IE / tools/Internet Options/Advanced/UNCHECKED Passive FTP...

to avoid this, I've created the bat file (Converted to exe), that I will send to clients/Users to use.

so , I needed to add a line to disable the passive  ftp at beginning of code.

thanks

Well, I don't think that's possible with just BAT commands.  But you might be able to get there with VBS.  To get a sense of what's possible there take a look at this article and see what you think.
