FTP problems


James Luk

I currently am having problems with FTP. My internet connection works
accessing websites(http), email(pop &smtp servers).

Whenever I ftp into a server I can login, but it just does nothing when I do
a file listing(dir or ls). The following is what happens:

ftp> open ftp.microsoft.com
Connected to ftp.microsoft.com.
220 Microsoft FTP Service
User (ftp.microsoft.com:(none)): anonymous
331 Anonymous access allowed, send identity (e-mail name) as password.
230-This is FTP.Microsoft.Com
230 Anonymous user logged in.
ftp> ls
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.

(at this point nothing happens)

I can sucessfully connect and do file listings on ftp sites, when I first
login to my computer. However after a few minutes, my ftp connection dies,
which leads me to believe its an application causing it. I do not have
Internet Connection Firewall enabled. Any suggestions on what is causing

I've tested it some more, it only occurs when I do a DIR or LS command, I
can do GET and PUT and change directories, just unable to list directory
