    I have one client who just cannot ftp to my server (running RH7.3/cpanel with proftpd). About 66% of his ftp commands are unsuccesful.

    Here are the details of his client:

    LibNcFTP 3.1.5 (October 13, 2002) compiled for macosx10.2.1
    Uname: Darwin|Emilio-Robless-Computer.local.|6.5|Darwin Kernel Version 6.5:
    Mon Apr 7 17:05:38 PDT 2003; root:xnu/xnu-344.32.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC |Power
    Sysinfo: Mac OS X 10.2.5 (Build 6L29)

    He is running Mac OS X - and he says he is turning off his Nortons Personal Firewall to FTP. He has passive enabled in his client. He says he can FTP to other servers just fine - but not mine :(

    Here are some examples from his transfer log:

    Cmd: SYST
    215: UNIX Type: L8
    Cmd: CWD public_html
    250: CWD command successful.
    Cmd: PWD
    257: "/public_html" is current directory.
    Cmd: PASV
    227: Entering Passive Mode (209,123,134,61,215,229).
    Cmd: LIST
    150: Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list
    226: Transfer complete.

    Cmd: PASV
    227: Entering Passive Mode (209,123,134,61,215,230).
    Data connection timed out.


    Cmd: PWD
    257: "/public_html/webtesting" is current directory.
    Cmd: PASV
    Could not read reply from control connection: Connection reset by
    peerPassive mode refused.

    Any ideas?

    Have you had him try another FTP client ?
    I prefer Transmit for the Mac. I have never had a problem with it on my server using OS9x & OSX and it supports SFTP also.
