    not able to connect to external ftp sites from client machines

    Hi Everybody, I am new to Linux, so if my questions are silly please take it easy.

    I have a Fedora Core 5 installed on my home network as a server and using a winxp client that connect through the Linux machine to access internet, mail and etc... Everything is working fine except I cannot connect to any external FTP servers from my winxp machine. I can access the internet fine.

    Any idea what might be the problem?

    I can connect to external ftp from the linux machine but not from the client winxp.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    what client are you using? try checking/unchecking a box that says "passive" if you find it. thats a common problem =]

    Hi Sam, I tried that already, I am sure the firewall is not configured properly but I do not know how to set it right ;(

    Thanks, das

    sorry forgot to mention the client, I have tried many Total Commander, Cute FTP, Smart FTP, etc.. with passive option.
