Well that's good...but it doesn't make sense unless we're talking about a different problem than the one i assumed. PASV or EPSV set up the data connection (EPSV is really just the ipv6 version of pasv). Once the data connection is in place it doesn't matter which one was used. If the problem was in establishing a data connection for a transfer then I can see how perhaps the firewall had an issue but after that...

But hey, if it's working...

If the timeout is happening after it has been sending for a while then I
don't see any reason why a switch from EPSV to PASV would have any effect

But, I had discovered in another post about using passive mode (PASV)
......as opposed to the default of ... extended passive mode (EPSV)

That seems to do the trick
....it does not have issues with the firewall now ....no time out
