    Having all kinds of problems with Mac users trying to connect to my Linux FTP site.

    Here is a sample log from a client

    Connecting to ftp.napc.ca port 21 (12/31/69 4:04:01 PM)
    220 ready, dude (vsFTPd 1.0.1: beat me, break me)
    USER ftpguest
    331 Please specify the password.
    PASS
    230 Login successful. Have fun.
    SYST
    215 UNIX Type: L8
    PWD
    257 "/home/ftpusers/ftpguest"
    MACB ENABLE
    500 Unknown command.
    PWD
    257 "/home/ftpusers/ftpguest"
    PASV
    227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,0,242,137,70)
    LIST
    425 Failed to establish connection.
    ftp_list: -30000 (state == GETTING_LIST)
    QUIT
    221 Goodbye.

    Hoping someone can help me with this. Thanks much!

    How is your FTP site connected to the Internet? It is advertising a private (192.168.*.*) address, which isn't valid on the Internet at large. You could ask the client to try using non-passive mode (in Fetch they'd uncheck the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences).

    Thanks,
