ftp connection problem. It hangs on "entering passive mode"
I connect to an ftp server just fine. But I think it is supposed to forward me to a private IP and port once i'm there, like 192.168.1.75:4755. (Supposed to, like in a windows ftp program its fine.) This is a unix os i'm connected to by the way. so i can use certain commands when i get connected, but when I execute "dir" or "ls" it says "Entering Passive Mode <192.168.1.75, xx, xx>"
then it just hangs.
and then times out.
What's going on?
in dos, when i try the same connection and i try an "ls" command, it is successful--
"200 port command okay, and then 150 Opening ASCII no print mode data connection for ls -l"
then i am able to function.
i'm running stock rh9.
