    Default Using Filezilla FTP server and cPanel backup. Doesn't transfer files.

    I have an issue that has mne scratching my head. I would like to backup my server, to a box inside my home.
    I have port 21 forwarded correctly, and can connect to the FTP server and transfer a file as if I was uploadeing a webpage. SO it all work just fine.

    But when cPanel tries to transfers files, I get the following output:
    Code:
    (000260) 5/3/2010 7:56:59 AM - xxxxx (ip)> 230 Logged on
    (000260) 5/3/2010 7:56:59 AM - xxxxx (ip)> TYPE I

    (000260) 5/3/2010 7:57:00 AM - xxxxx (ip)> 221 Goodbye
    What is real interesting is that cPanel was, initially, able to login and create the backup directories. But it is unable to transfer the files.
    Does anyone have any ideas on this? Again, it is Filezilla FTP server

    Does anyone know a good Windows based FTP server to use with cPanel?
    I can't seem to get any configuration to work with Filezilla and cPanel.

    Try disabling 'FTP Backup Passive Mode' in the cpanel backup configuration section.

    Ok, I'll try that. I had it enabled because it says to have it enabled on an FTP server that is behind a FIREWALL/NAT. But perhaps the port forwarding negates that?
    My home router is a Linksys wrt-54g-TM (Basically upgraded wrt54g-L) running DD-WRT firmware.
