    FTP server access

    I have 2 class C networks connected by a broadband router. The network on the LAN side of the router has an FTP server on Win2000server. The router is configured to expose all ports of this server to the WAN side.

    On the WAN side, I have a Win98 machine that has no problem accessing this FTP server. But the other machine, a Linux one running RedHat8+Gnome cannot access this FTP server. It does connect to the address and does get logged in, but waits forever trying to get the filelist till the time that the server times out the connection.

    Is there any incompatibility between MS and Linux FTPs.

    the problem is, there are few ftp standards with the exception of the port used, and this can cause problems, but the CLI ftp is almost always my safe bet.
