Re: Passive FTP on a Windows FTP Client
I've had issues in the past with the FTP site I was trying to connect to not
even letting me log in unless the "passive" switch was turned on when executing
the "FTP" command.
If you can't log in, you can't set the passive mode.
I e-mailed John privately, but I have found no way to set the "passive" switch
from the command line in Windows, and I have spoken to a few seasoned Windows
programmers about it. If there is a way, I was talking to the wrong people.....
In the past, I have ended up taking one of 2 approaches; using a UNIX box to
execute the FTP file transfer or use a 3rd party tool (like WS-FTP Pro).

That should do it.

> Does anyone know how to set your Windows FTP client in Passive mode? Or
even if it is possible. I'm hoping to stick with an out of the box windows
ftp client, but if I cannot I would take suggestions on a good ftp client.
The only main requirement would be, that it needs to be able to be run from
a command line prompt.
