I experience a strange behavior when trying to connect to my Ftp-Server
With local connect (10.0.3.2), and access via a dial-in Internet connection,
there are no problems.
However, from my office using ADSL connection, i can login but the LIST reply
does get no reply from the FTP server.
Sounds like there is a router/firewall in between on your ADSL line, that
doesn't allow the data link to be created. The control link made to the ftp
server is to the server's port 21, and that's fine, but the data link is either
A: (non-passive) going from the server's port 20 (usually) to a "random" port on
the client - and that looks supicious to the client's router/firewall, or
B: (passive) going from the client to a "random" port on the server - and that
looks suspicious to the server's router/firewall (see http://www.mdjnet.dk/ftp.html
for further information).
So, if one of the routers/firewalls involved
is not ftp-aware, or not explicitly set up to allow the data link, it is
blocked. Have a look in the "Firewall Help" forum. I don't know how to set up
your router/firewall, or which one is the problem, but perhaps someone else has
already solved a similar problem.
