trouble with FTPon XP Pro

I am having some problems with FTP on Windows XP Pro

I can conncect to the server and log in, but it "freezes" when it tries to retrieve the remote directory.

I have tried three different methods (my network places, dos, and cuteftp), all have the same problem.

any suggestions?

thanks

Does this happen to all FTP sites or just one in particular?

Is the built in firewall disabled? Are you using a router?

it sounds quite a bit like your machine is having trouble displaying passive mode for some reason.

i'm going to suspect it's something to do with the built-in firewall.

just for grins and giggles, have you tried logging into a public ftp site? like ftp.microsoft.com. log in anonymously in dos and let us know what happens.
