Ftp conection refused error


Here is the scenario

On the web server itself I created a user test
I can ftp local host login and run the dir command and transfer files

Now on my second pc I can login fine using test user
but when i run dir or try transfering files i get

ftp> dir
227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,1,102,150,125)
ftp: connect: Connection refused

So i tried my third PC (Winblowz 98)
It works fine from there -- Go figure

so its just my main linux workstation messing up



Any ideas why I get that connection refused when i use simple commands from a different pc on my network?

Turn off passive mode on the machine that can't connect should probably do the trick.

Not sure about a permanent fix to make it not use passive. What ftp program are you using, command line or cgui based? Is this from Linux or a Windows machine?
