Description Ionel Vasilescu 2000-11-07 21:46:02 UTC
wu-ftpd-2.6.1 gives a "425 can't build data connection" on "ls" cmd in the 
client. Interestingly enough, most clients fail the 'ls' cmd (Win32 and 
Unix alike), with the exception of the ftp client installed on RH7 intel 
platform. I have a hunch that all non-passive clients fail, and that the 
absence of the August 29 wu-ftpd patch (ftp://ftp.wu-ftpd.org/pub/wu-
ftpd/patches/apply_to_current/pasv-port-allow-correction.patch) for 2.6.1 
is what causes the problems I'm experiencing with the new wu-ftpd. Another 
point of interest is that your wu-ftpd-2.6.0-14x works OK for all the 
clients I tried.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-11-08 08:11:14 UTC
The clients are broken. See http://www.wu-ftpd.org/wu-ftpd-faq.html for more information on the problem.

Comment 2 Ionel Vasilescu 2000-11-08 20:40:14 UTC
If the clients are the faulty party, why can I do 'ls' on intel RH7, but not on 
alpha RH7 from same "broken" client?

Comment 3 Gary Hicks 2000-12-04 16:35:18 UTC
I have verified this problem, also.  I did an identical install of RH7.0 on an Alpha system and an Intel system.  I am able to execute  an "ls" under ftp 
without any problems on the Intel system.  However, if I try the same thing from the same client connected to an Alpha system, I receive:

   ftp> ls
   200 PORT command successful.
   425 Can't build data connection: Connection refused.

This problem appears to be fixed in:


You can get a copy from http://rpmfind.net

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2001-03-07 21:17:31 UTC
The newer version of wu-ftp does fix the problem. However,  the RH7 Alpha
updates page should be updated to include this.

Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-03-16 12:16:17 UTC
Fixed in the current version
