I have an FTP account that can only be accessed using active FTP, but Filezilla enters PASV anyway.

Here are the account parameters:
username and password withheld

servertype: default, autodetect
no bypass proxy
default local directory and default remote directory blank
no adjust server timezone

This is a windows server running ftp service (lunarpages).

My hardware/software setup is follows:

  • Panda antivirus/firewall, applicable ports open, can connect to PASV ftp with no problems, filezilla set to inbound/outbound
  • windows xp sp2, intel core 2 duo conroe, 2gb ram, sata boot drive, sata optical, raid5 storage
  • network route:
    1. Intel(R) 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection, obtain IP address & DNS automatically
    2. D-Link DGS-2208 gigabit switch, unmanaged, no configuration, no dhcp or other features
    3. LinksKey LKR-604 broadband router, provides DHCP, ip address, WAN port to cable modem

I should mention applicable program settings here:

FTP: active, fallback to other transfer mode on failure

Active mode: ask operating system

Passive: fall back

FTP Proxy: none

You need to configure active mode properly, read

Also give this guide to the server administrator, only a stupid administrator disables passive mode.
