FTP uploads hang


I am having a strange issue at the moment, uploads seem to hang from my linux boxes to the remote end.
These are the dumps from curling the files.

Quote:

There is a firewall that is not blocking anything since i have allowed any/any both ways.
I have tested this in passive mode (as above) and with passive mode off.

The strangest thing is, is that this upload will work FINE from another box that is a Windows CURL instead of linux.

It is not IPTABLES either, ive checked the tables and tried to flush them anyway, ive also tested this from another linux box and get the same problem.

You use passive mode on the Windows machine?

Yes it should be using the default behaviour which is passive mode I am pretty sure. A switch disables EPSV though.

In the example above I'm using passive mode in the test, but the same results are seen with passive on or off.

I would try active mode anyway.

Active mode gives me the same problem as passive mode.

Regardless;
How can it possibly make sense that the win32 version of curl appears to upload correctly, and linux version does not?

It is absolutely baffling and I'm at wits end. ./sigh
