Additional detailsthankyou Joe. Attaboy, whilst your solution did not work, it did help me look it up (you have to type quote pasv Apparantly) because I am running XP.

? Best Answer-Chosen by votersafter you connect to the FTP server, at the FTP prompt, enter:


You shoshould get a response verification from the other end.

Well, it's been a while since I did an FTP in Windows or dos.
You might want to try an FTP client, some kind of FTP software. i'm a Linux User myself, and I use gftp, but I doubt that's available for Windows. there shoshould be some FTP Windows client available.

I have tried this long ago. It seems I cannot.
However, PASV using LeapFTP and CuteFTP can be used, but it has never been understood.
See the following:

C: \> FTP
Connected to
220-serv-u FTP-server v2.3b for Winsock ready...
220-welcome to this FTP Server
220-Welcome to upload some small software in incoming directory
220-This FTP is only available for free access to CERNET
220-all software is only used for teaching and scientific research and cannot be used for profit purposes
220-you are not welcome to upload too large software due to hard disk space limitations.
220-do not upload content in violation of national laws and regulations
220 if the user finds any illegal content on the FTP, please send a letter to the user in time
User ( :( none): Anonymous
331 user name OK, please send complete e-mail address as Password

Ftp> literal PASV
227 entering Passive Mode
(202,114, 14,38, 10,104)
Ftp> literal list-Al
Connection closed by remote host.

After entering PASV mode, ls, get, list, and so on won't work.

[Mentioned in the masterpiece of November (Qiu jiangfengyu @. @ the final ostrich :]
: Sauce purple:
: After ftp xxx. XXX,
: Enter the username (such as anonymous) and password
: Enter literal in ftp> mode, and then ask you command line to send
: Enter PASV. Of course, your FTP server must support it.
: Then you can use the get and mget commands to retrieve files.
: In Windows 98, this is the case. Use the passive command in Linux.


It does not work either. It seems only applicable to Linux

Get this when uploading or dowloading files: Code: 425 use port or PASV first. Can anyone help me ?...

    PASV vs Port

    The FTP server wants to know whether to use a port-mode channel or passive-mode data channel. most clients will set this up for you transparently (and generally choose passive 'cos it's newer and better ). to send a command to the server you use the 'quote'
    Command. Hence if you type:


    Then it shoshould all work nicely. as an aside, if you type 'remotehelp' then it shoshould show you all the commands that the server can receive-all these can be used with the 'quote' command.
