FTP - Can NOT connect.
« on: December 11, 2017, 04:55:32 pm »
SlickEdit 2011 (v16.0.3.0 64-bit)
RHEL 6.9

Hi,

I am on RHEL 6.9.  I have no problem connecting to a remote site, via FTP with the Nautilus File Manager (2.28 ).

I can't connect with Visual Slickedit

The error message I am getting


Quote
FTP Error
Error with LIST response. 
Bad or unexpected response
425 Could not open data connection to port 32801: Connection refused

I am not setting that port,  I have the default port of 21.

I am using the remote directory of "/", which works with the file manager on my OS.  I also tried different directories.  No dice.

I am providing my server name, userid, passoword.  I have tried setting my host type to both Auto and Unix.  No dice.

Any idea what is wrong and how I can fix it?

Thanks

Steve

The LIST command is failing. You need to enable passive data connections. Search the forum for "PASV" and you should find instructions.

It worked.

Thank You

SlickEdit can work with passive transfers (PASV), but it is not the default. You will have to set it up:
1. File>FTP>Default Options
2. Firewall/Proxy tab
3. Enable firewall/proxy ON
4. Select "Router" (Passive transfers will be forced ON)

Now edit your connection profile:
1. Advanced tab
2. Use firewall/proxy ON
