Entered ftp server with anonymous credentials, and got the response that I logged in successfully 230 Login successful. Want to list all files in current directory, issued LIST command, the server responded that I should enter passive mode first 425 Use PORT or PASV first.. Entered passive mode with PASV command and got response 227 Entering Passive Mode (204,9,55,82,249,45).. After that trying to list content of current dirctory with LIST command and got nothing in response. However after a minute or so server responded with 425 Failed to establish connection.. What does this mean? Thanks.

PS. I'm simulating ftp connection with telnet

    There is another way of phrasing this: I am using something that is not an FTP client and that does not speak the protocol to talk to an FTP server, and I am getting errors with the protocol. (-: – JdeBP Apr 16 at 12:03
  • I noted that I simulate it with telnet, please read carefully :) – maks Apr 16 at 12:09
  • I already did. That's the very thing that isn't an FTP client and that does not speak the protocol. I unburied the lead for you. – JdeBP Apr 16 at 12:20
