    I'm not sure there's any requirement for BINARY; it looks like ASCII is expected and fine. The problem looks more like passive mode is being attempted, but a firewall is blocking it. However, much more detail is needed.   A clean copy of the FTP session log is needed. It must include CR/LFs at the end of each line in order to be readable. You might need to paste it into Notepad first to make sure that each end-of-line gets inserted; then copy/paste from there.   Also, what exact client is being used? What Windows OS is it? And do you know the OS release on the remote server? (A full session log might show it.)   Also, what firewalls or security appliances are between the two systems? It might be okay if you only know what is on your end.   Tom
