Hello K,

FTP access for log files is restricted for security reasons. The
information your provide below shows you attempting to do a number of
things that are not allowed - for example, directory listings. It is
possible that the system disconnected you for security reasons
(thought I doubt it).

Uploading log files should be very simple.

  That's what I thought, but for some reason it no longer works as well as
it used to. Up until a couple of months ago, I never had any issues
uploading logfiles. Then I started getting periodic transfer failures that
increased in frequency until I'm at the point now where nothing seems to work.

Connect, login, put your file.

  Since my FTP program hasn't seemed to be able to get log files uploaded,
I tried uploading via the command prompt on my mail server...

ftp open ftp.sortmonster.net
Connected to www.sortmonster.net.
220 Hello.
User (www.sortmonster.net:(none)):
331 Please specify the password.

230 Login successful.
ftp
ftp bin
200 Switching to Binary mode.
ftp hash
Hash mark printing On  ftp: (2048 bytes/hash mark) .
ftp send mylogfile061203.log
200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV.
150 Ok to send data.

  At this point it just hangs, no transfer occurring. In the event that it
might be transferring but not displaying the hash marks, I left it sit for
over 30 minutes(10mb logfile)...nothing. I'm not sure what else to try.

What you've described usually goes along with a firewall problem.
Firewalls and FTP are always a challenge. What seems to be happening
is that the command channel is working fine, but when it's time to set
up the data channel that fails- and so you don't get any data.

  There is no firewall. I have TCP port filtering set up on the machine,
but both 20 and 21 are open.

You will very likely need to use passive mode then, as TCP Port
filtering works very much the same way as a firewall, at least as it
applies to FTP.

Any recommendations on a command line PASV-capable FTP client?

  Just did about 5 minutes ago. It won't run without specifying a
destination directory, and sortmonster ftp won't allow any directory settings.


Thanks though  :o)
