    Same machine; FTP from terminal can view and retrieve files. But same account via FTP desktop app of FireFTP in browser times out. Just started doing this a few days ago.

    Anything cmd line client doing different from desktop app?

    Thanks.

    Hello:)

    It's likely you have firewall rules enabled that are blocking the passive FTP ports that are configured in:

    Code:
    /etc/pure-ftpd.conf
    Check to ensure the following line is not disabled in the above file:

    Code:
    PassivePortRange 30000 35000
    Then, ensure the above port range is not blocked in your firewall. This document may help:

    Thank you.
