I have a network consisting of several Linux machines and one Windows
2000 machine. This network is tied together using Samba, and one of the
Linux machines has a modem on it that connects my network to my isp. My
problem is this:
If I try to connnect to an external machine using ftp on the Windows
2000 machine, I can get connected, but when it goes to open the
directory on the remote location, I get a message "Port 192.168.0.2,6,85
500 Illegal Port command
!Failed "retrieve remote file list"
unable to retrieve remote file list
I've tried several ftp programs, including command line ftp, and I get
the same, or similar results. (192.168.0.2 is my Windows 2000 machine) I
can connect to remote ftp sites if I run ftp on any of the Linux boxes.
Does anybody know what the problem is, or if there is any fix? I've
tried to connect to many different sites, and I get the same problems.
