    I recently switched my ISP and now I'm having problems with some of my ftp contacts. I can login but I can't get a directory list, this is the message I get -
    LIST
    150 Opening data connection for directory list.
    ftp_list: -3260

    I tried passive mode but no luck. This only happens with a few ftp contacts.
    Can anyone help me?
    Thanks

    That error means that a connection attempt was refused. I can't tell if the connection is being refused by the server or by your Mac, because the transcript did not include the PORT or PASV command that comes before the LIST command. Could you post a couple transcripts that include those commands, one in passive mode and one not?

    Thanks,

    That looks like a firewall or Network Address Translation problem. Do you know if your ISP has a firewall?

    Yes, they do have a firewall. Is there any way to fix this?

    I would ask them what sort of provisions they have for FTP through their firewall. Fetch 4.0 supports the major kinds of FTP proxy server, and uses the same terminology for types of proxy servers as the Windows FTP client WS_FTP (which your ISP may be more familiar with).
