Problem : New FTP sites hangs at 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection
I have just created a new FTP-site on a Win2008R2 server.
I can log on to the site with my domain user. I can do cd to change directory.
But when I do any commands that involvs fetching data from the FTP (dir, get, put) the sessions hangs on:
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection
Hangs there until i ctrl-c to stop it. If I wait long enough before I break it I get a connection lost when prompt returns.
Commands like CD, pwd, mkdir, rmdir works fine.
I have reinstalled the FTP- feature on the server.
Solution: New FTP sites hangs at 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection
What ftp client software are you using. Is it in port or passive mode?
If it’s in port mode the FTP server will try open a second connection from itself to the client machine to transfer data. This connection may be blocked by any firewall between you.
