Did you flip the terms around?

"Active" means that the FTP server tries to connect back to the client machine to make new data connections.

"Passive" means that the FTP client initiates the connections.

If you can connect to the FTP server on the control port, then passive mode should work (assuming the router is doing all of the port forwarding.) If you use active mode then the FTP server tries to make the data connection to the client, but might have to fight to get through firewalls to the client. That usually doesn't go well.

Nope. On the Android client, passive mode does not work, only active mode...
I saw that you tried connecting to the server recently. Were you able to list the directories?

I just tried and couldn't connect; did you take it back down?

I don't really need the games, I just wanted to see what PCjr-compatible games you found worthy enough to keep around semi-permanently.
You're all insane and trying to steal my magic bag!

Yes, I took it down because I am currently out of town. I'll put it back up on Tuesday footnote a few more days.

OK it's back up now, but I changed the port. You should be able to connect to it at the following address: ftp://98.227.142.52:2021/
I'll keep it running for a few days.
PS: Chrome seems to have a problem with that address. Firefox and IE work fine however.

Chrome has a nasty habit of making multiple connections and it sends a parameter on the FTP raw list command that it should not send. It is assuming Unix. My test copy of the FTP server has that fixed, as well as a few other bugs.

I took the liberty of leaving the test version for you in your incoming directory. :-)

I checked out the new version for ftpsrv and it works fine with Chrome now. However, I noticed that Chrome connects and then disconnects with every command sent to the server. It is transparent from the user side, but I was wondering if that is normal behavior.

I think one of the standalone FTP clients I've used does the same thing in regards to connecting before sending a command, and disconnecting after it is completed.

Most browsers do that. HTTP is a very "transactional" model, and web browsers tend to treat FTP as a transaction too. Which is kind of silly, but really doesn't make much of a difference.
