I did install vsftpd on redhat linux 6. I need help with the following. I have disabled selinux and flushed the iptables. So there is no security measure here as per my knowledge.
1. what is passive and active? How do i know what is my current status. is it passive or active setup?
2. How do i change the log file. instead of xferlog, I need vsftpd.log should be generated.
3. when I tried to ftp from windows, I get the following message and it hung.
Connected to 192.168.3.127.
220 (vsFTPd 2.2.2)

230 Login successful.
200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV.
PASV mode is initiated by the client. FTP uses many 'ephemeral' ports above 1024 while it is in operation. However, firewalls sometimes don't allow that. So instead of the server using the ephemeral ports, the client does and that's called PASV mode.
