Error 425 with Filezilla FTP Server

#1 Post by Hazy Arc » 2014-01-20 02:37

Hi All:

I'm using Filezilla server (and Filezilla client on receiving end) to transfer files between two locations. The client is able to connect to the server and retrieve files, but after two completed file transfers (it appears Filezilla client automatically begins 2 concurrent file transfers if you queue several), I receive FTP error 425 (Can't Open Data Connection) on both ends and the remaining queued files fail. I can instantly restart the connection and transfer manually and the transfer begins again, but again, the queued transfers will fail after the initial 2 are done. Here is a snippit of what the client shows as it fails:

Code: Select all

Command:	RETR File3
Response:	425 Can't open data connection.
Error:	File transfer failed
Status:	Starting download of File3
Command:	PASV
Response:	227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,1,250,208,190)
Status:	Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead.

Any ideas? I'm using Tomato in front of the server with ports 20 and 21 forwarded to the server's internal IP address - FWIW. Thanks!

The server isn't configured correctly. Please have a look at the Network Configuration guide.

Thanks - I ended up having to open a series of ports for Passive mode and set them statically in the server interface in addition to specifying my external IP address.

Just curious - why did the first two files transfer without a problem?

Dunno, I see no log of them.
