500 Illegal PORT command Error:

#1 Post by jkjames7 » 2014-03-06 19:16

Hello everyone!
I can't connect to an FTP server.
It lets me login but it says this error:
Response: 500 Illegal PORT command
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

Running in active mode. If I run in passive I get this error:
Status: Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead.
Command: MLSD

Servers running ProFTPD.

Any ideas would help!
Heres the connection log:

Please read the Network Configuration guide for instructions how to configure active mode. To get passive mode working, get a better server administrator.
