I have a client working on a new XP machine that is trying to ftp a file to their local machine from an AS400 and is encountering an error I cannot figure out. They are using the anonymous id & pwd. Below is a list of their server log:

user successfully logged in
enter an ftp subcommand
put elecb192 elecb192.txt
entering passive mode
opening binary mode data connection for file transfer
attempt to open connection failed
failed to create data connection socket
cannot access file

I would appreciate any & all suggestions!

Your firewall or router is blocking the passive mode data connection, try port mode instead or disable the firewall

Thanks! How would I change it from passive to port mode? Do you somehow wipe out the pasv settings in the configuration? And supposedly the firewall has been disabled.

Just disable passive mode in the FTP client.
