I'm trying to download files using my FTP server, it works great in Windows XP but in Windows Server 2003 I get the following message I'm using FTP server.. and trying to download files. "425 use port or passive first".
Any help will greatly be appreciated.
425 use port or pasv first Error in Windows Server 2003
You encounter this because The FTP server wants to know what port you want to use either use a port-mode or passive-mode data channel. You don’t need to bother about this because most clients set up this automatically and choose passive because it is latest and better. But if you want to send command to the server you need to use the 'quote' command. Type this one:
then it should all work now. If you want some help regarding to this one you just type
'remotehelp'. Note that all of those can be use with the 'quote' command.
Hope this helped.
