I've been trying to sort ftp for several hours, maybe you can help. On my vps and dedicated server, I used to be able to connect using SFTP with SSH AND also FTP SSL (Explicit). I do not allow plain text ftp. I use Cyberduck ftp client and Filezilla. CYberduck mostly because its great on Mac. Today I found that I can connect using ftp ssl explicit, but when it gets to 'listing directory' it fails. This happens in Cyberduck but not in Filezilla... it seems that the LIST command isn't working or something... I can still log in ok using ssh but trying to explain secure ftp to clients is a nightmare anyway as I get "I just want to connect, why all this security, my previous host just let me connect" Appreciate any help from anyone! While trying to sort this I keep locking myself out for port scanning etc!
