    PASV vs PORT

    The FTP server wants to know whether to use a port-mode channel or passive-mode data channel. Most clients will set this up for you transparently (and generally choose passive 'cos it's newer and better). To send a command to the server you use the 'quote' command. Hence if you type:

    quote PASV

    then it should all work nicely. As an aside, if you type 'remotehelp' then it should show you all the commands that the server can receive - all these can be used with the 'quote' command.
