Passive Mode is the way to go, but some clients will still "trip up" it seems, notably IE in it'a various flavours.
Make sure you have enough data ports forwarded in the router/firewall to the PC that your "Server application" is attached to. That should not be a problme testing your server from another PC on the same LAN though. >From watching things as they work (or not) I find IE seems to use up all the data ports that you can supply at times, where as a "true" ftp client will only use 1 or two, depending on how many data streams are in use. Another way, if you need and are able to, is to use it over a VPN between server and client. Cheers. Dave B.
