having trouble with gFTP


I am using gFTP to connect to other ftp server
but recently I am getting some troubles,
I keep getting the following error ( but I have no problem to connect to the server in windows, so there is nothing wrong with the server)


Looking up ftp1.tvdown.com
Trying 202.103.8.114:21
Connected to 202.103.8.114:21
220 Serv-U FTP Server v4.0 for WinSock ready...
USER incalcando
331 User name okay, need password.
230 User logged in, proceed (ServUPlus.0/60 cache.86227)
TYPE 1

PWD

Type set to l.
Disconnecting from site 202.103.8.114
Waiting 10 seconds until trying to connect again


does anyone know any possible reason for this error ??
I have tried all kinds of setting in gFTP ( there are not too many of them )
but still can't sovle the problem

Please help


thanks

Try running it from an x terminal so you can see all the errors and post them.

According to Netcraft, that site is running Microsoft-IIS/5.0 on Windows 2000.

Microsoft servers assume that they are talking to another Microsoft machine and they skip several communications protocols (so that it appears that their servers are actually faster) in connecting to each other. They are suppose to drop back to a standard protocol when another standards conforming OS replies with the "what the hell did you send me" error, but sometimes Windows sysadms don't have a clue how to set it up correctly.

I can't stand their "Embrace and extend" business practices.

Sorry, there may be no help for your problem.

could it possibly be a problem of running your client in passive mode...although the reasoning might be behind what fancypiper said, maybe try taking off passive mode and see if you have any more success?

fancypiper:

you might be right,
using ncftp
I got
User logged in, proceed.(ServUPlus.0/30 Sec Cache.38882)
Protocol violation by server: blank line on control.
