A friend of mine posted the following question in another forum, but did not get any response.
He uses the comp @ a university and has the following question
Hi everybody. I have a problem with the ftp programs. I am working on Linux and I am behind a firewall. I tried to connect to a couple of ftp’s, but I could not see the folders. There was something about the passive transfer. I set the ftp program not to use a passive transfer and I still could not connect. Does anybody have any idea.
Maybe there are some linux users here that have some advice for him?
