I am trying to connect to an FTP site with TDA 2.6 and 2.7. I am able to connect with FileZilla but when I tried to connect from View | FTP Connections in Toad, I get
The IP address used by the FTP client is sitting behind a firewall and Toad FTP module does not let the user change to passive mode (or set the transfer type to passive transfer).
When using active mode, the FTP client will sends to the FTP server the preferred IP address. The FTP server will then initiate the connection to the IP it got; however, If the IP address that the FTP client sent is behind a firewall, the FTP server will not be able to access it.
To circumvent this issue passive mode it used. In passive mode, the FTP client requests the IP address from the FTP server. The FTP server issues the IP address and the FTP client uses the issued IP to connect.
