Well both machines have their firewalls disabled and they both are not in /etc/hosts.deny.
I just cant figure out why i cant transfer files from one of the machines.
is there a second party ftp client i could probably use?
In active, your FTP server is the a boss that will connect back to client with the port depend on what port which client connect for the first time. This usually block by a firewall of the client side.
In passive, your client instead is a boss, that will connect to ftp server with random port depend on what port server generate and send back to client. This can solve the problem in active setting but give you more configuration for the server side to allow the range of incoming ports from client, that let you to set for FTP's configuration file also to generate that range of port.
