    I use a free FTP server on Windows 2000 and some users can't connect to my FTP server using Fetch 3.0.1 on MAC OS 9.
    In the past when I hadn't any firewall all were ok, but now i have installed an hardware firewall. The 21 port is open on the firewall and form the internal LAN i can connect to the server via Fetch, but some external users cannot. If someone can help...

    Thank you

    By installing a firewall in front of your server you've blocked passive mode, which is the recommended mode for FTP clients. You can suggest that your users turn off passive mode; they will also have to turn off any firewall on their computers. Or you can turn off your firewall; firewalls and FTP servers really don't go together.

    Thanks,
