Unhappy FTP Data transfer

Is anyone know about using FTP under Linux firewall system?
I have problem for transfer data thru Linux system.
I went to DOS prompt and using FTP command. I try to using PUT command to send the data to our remote host but cursor just blink on put command. It didn't send the data. I talk to the technician who setup Linux firewall system. He said the passive mode on Linux doesn't have function for Dos FTP. IS that true? IF not, how do I transfer data thru Linux firewall using FTP.

Please Help!!!!!

When you run FTP, use the 'passive' command and then 'put'. Does it work? he firewall should pass passive FTP connections (but don't know the details of your configuration, so it may be blocked).

I don't know if it's true that the dos version of FTP doesn't do passive transfer, but it could be. I would try using another FTP client that you know does passive transfers. I assume you're using a windows machine (dos reference) so you could try using IE as an ftp client. Just type ftp://userassword@ip_address in the address bar. I think the latest version of IE allows drag and drop file transfers. If that doesn't work, go to the web and download a freeware FTP client that supports the passive transfers. Let me know if that helps.

I just check our technician. He still said the Ftp server won't work with ftp dos client. It only work with ftp window client. Therefore, I download evaluation WS_FTP pro and using the ftpscrp.exe. Then it works fine. That's so strange? Anway, thanks all of you help.
