Active ftp switches back to Passive FTP - why? (2 posts)

    Why when I set Fetch 5.0.5 to not use PASV, and connect to the remote ftp site, the fetch dog runs and runs, and appears from the transcript below that Fetch wants to use PASV, even though I think it started out not using PASV?

    Thanks

    Fetch is trying PASV because the alternative (PORT) is not working. Do you know if you're behind some sort of firewall? That might explain why active mode (PORT) is not working.
