Ftp directory not listing query


R

RoseW

In the past two weeks the FileZilla software (both previous V2 and current
V3) will NOT list one server storage directory files. There is a connection
and the word LIST appears then various errors will be presented if continued
connections are attempted.
I have Googled the error statements and find that many have this type of
performance but a distinct solution is not evident.

I am managing a friend's website on distant server and I have spoken with
them (twice) The best that tech could offer was to uninstall the FileZilla
software and reinstall. I did that today and used CCleaner afterwards to
ensure no references in the registry nor any XML files stored in the
Application data. Reinstalled a known stable version 2 FileZilla.No
difference.

I can connect successfully to two other servers and see the directory
listing so the same software (FileZilla and the same router Linksy
Wireless-G) only using Windows Xp sp3 firewall but I did put FileZilla in as
an acceptable incoming software, just in case.


Now I have run out of search words to find a solution. Is there a solution
whether FTP software or a specific Active connection configuration rather
than Pasv?

Posting FileZilla's Client/Server dialog (top window) would help here.
Usually errors at this point are Active vs Passive mode problems.
If you are behind a NAT router, then your only choice is Passive Mode.
Make sure that
Edit->Settings->Connection->FTP is set to "Passive Mode"
and
Edit->Settings->Connection->FTP->Passive Mode has the "Use Server's
external IP Address" checked.

The connection setting has always been on Passive Mode
I dropped back to v 2.2.31 and I don't see the setting 'Use the Server's
external IP address' in the choices.
I have a Linskey router and I can connect to two other servers for web sites
and the directories display immediately. This is in V3 or V2 of FileZilla.
I am connected to this server at nexicom.net. The directory just won't list
and I've been connecting there for 3 years.
This error message resulted in the two attempts while getting these two log
files
"A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host."

Thanks for checking. I had come to the same conclusion but its asking the
correct question at the server end. I have spoken to their support dept.
twice but the tech. who answers really isn't versed in FTP. He did transfer
and inquire of the FTP manager and the response was that all things were
working.

I can get into the site using their web service and upload one file at a
time. I think I'll double check the permission codes on my set up for that
site and another thought is reboot the router.
Perhaps e-mailing that server the ftp log and requesting the host service
manager to consider possiblities might be the path to take at this point
because I have run out of 'key phrases' to direct the thinking at that end
<grin>.

My next step at this point would be to use a packet-capturing program
such as freeware Wireshark to capture the packets involved and
analyze where this is breaking down.
