Hello - I'm having a problem with a server running SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 and ftp. ftp connections used to work fine, but now I can connect to the server via ftp, I can issue type, pwd, and cd commands successfully and receive the response-- but when I issue ls, dir, get, or put commands, I get the message: "425 Can't build data connection: Invalid argument." No file configuration changes were made. The server was moved and is behind a new firewall, but as I said, I can connect and issue some commands successfully. Port 21 is open on the firewall so I can connect.
From the server, I can ftp to other sites and all commands work.
I do suspect the firewall, but I don't know why some commands work and others dont.
If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.
Got something to add? Send me email.

Unlike info, pinfo does not display anything if it has nothing. I've been forever irritated by info coming up with its default page when it has nothing to tell me. (Tony Lawrence)
