• Subject: JTOPEN FTP Through a Firewall question

I am using the jtopen version of the toolkit and I am attempting to
communicate with a number of sites that are outside our firewall.  I am able
to get and put files, but I am having a problem getting a listing of the
files in the current working directory.  I am using the FTP class.

If I am accessing the server directory without going through the firewall
everything goes perfectly.  

When I attempt ls through the firewall the list of files returned is always
empty.  The message returned is "226 Listing completed."

I found some documentation that talks about using Rbind() from the client to
establish an inbound connection.

What should I do to be able to get a list of the files in a directory on the
server?  All help would be much appreciated.
