File listing problems (3 posts)

I'm running PureFTPd 1.0.8 on my Linux machine.
Using MacOS X and terminal I can ftp to my Linux FTP server without a problem.
When I use Fetch, it will connect but then hang on "Getting file list..."
Any suggestions? I'm totally stumped.

I would recommend toggling the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. Does that help?
Thanks, it's working now.
It doesn't seem to have been a Passive/Active FTP setting issue. I discovered that my firewall wasn't letting through the lower end of my passive FTP ports.
I changed the setting in my firewall to match the ones in the FTP server and it started working.
Changing the Passive FTP setting didn't seem to make a difference until I fixed the firewall setting...don't know why that would be...but it's working.
Thanks for the tip. Love the product. Keep up the good work.
