Sounds like you are using passive mode ftp and the required data ports are
not open.

Check what ports are being used for the data channel and I suggest using a
custom port range and make sure this is allowed port range on the target

For example in filezilla tick the box to use a custom port range and
assign a specific port, then check with the network guys at the
destination end the port is open.

We're trying to use 5250 to download an update from an ISV using
FTP. It connects fine, and we can do a "cd". A "dir" command just sits
there, apparently doing nothing. A subsequent "cd" appears to work fine.
A "get" command just sits there, apparently doing nothing.

The vendor is adamant the problem is on my end. Any suggestions on what I
should check?
