Can't View/List Anything I upload or that exists on an MS FTP Server

This is really frustrating: I can connect to an MS FTP Service using the DOS MS ftp utility, and it will show a list of files.

I can't get this to work with SmartFTP. SmartFTP connects, but it doesn't show any files. Actually, when it performs a LIST, it pretty much hangs, with the 'hourglass' running, forever. I'm using Active mode, as that's what works.

Here's a typical result:

[16:17:53] SmartFTP v3.0.1022.36

[16:17:56] 200 PORT command successful.
[16:17:56] LIST
[16:17:56] 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for /bin/ls.

And there it hangs. I have to abort.

The bottom line is that SmartFTP is useles to me.

I've already unchecked all of the directory listing options/checkboxes.

Try passive mode and post the log: ... de-f1.html

Add SmartFTP to the exceptions in your software firewall and antivirus product. If this doesnt work temporary uninstall your software firewall and antivirus product and try again. If it is a network problem you won't be able to make a connection with any other FTP client as well. In this case you have to fix the network problem.


My fault. Fix is coming.
