    Hey guys, Ive been looking this up all morning - its a weird issue for me.
    Ive had pure-ftp working JUST fine all along and then today when I got on, or tried I got

    Error: Connection timed out
    Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
    (This is using FileZilla) - I normally use Fireftp but using this, I can get you the error messages better.

    I get this using passive mode

    I also get warnings in SSH while logged in saying

    Ok, so Ive tried connecting with the firewall off - No firewall running on my PC or server / IPTables Off and still same issue

    Ive tried with pro-ftp same issue

    THEN - here is something that is different

    using Filezilla I followed some site instructions that said to go active ftp and Click on Connection -> FTP -> Active Mode: Select "Ask your operating system for the external IP address"

    IT works.

    Fireftp doesnt have the option to ask for an external IP, is that my problem?
    I cant even use my droid ftp to get in, no directory listings.

    So whats changed and different and any idea how to get back to just normal not having to change a bunch of settings for ftp operations?
