FTP between VMS and Unix/linux

I try to copy via copy/ftp some files.

Unix server is just a snap (NAS) server.

With VMS 7.2-1 UCX 5.0A ECO 1 or VMS 7.3-1 UCX 5.3 ECO2 I have the same result.
TCPIP-E-FTP_DATACONF, cannot establish data connection with remote host
-SYSTEM-F-REJECT, connect to network object rejected

If I used VMS ftp client, it's the same thing but if I used Madgoat FTP client it works!!!

I passed through a firewall but ftp is authorized (works with madgoat between them).
No space in password, I have tried with passive mode and notruvms params but nothing works.

If someone knows...thanks

best regards

Re: FTP between VMS and Unix/linux

The fix is in an Eco (I do not know if it is available for Tcpip) and a workaround is available just defining some tcpip* logical name.

Re: FTP between VMS and Unix/linux

extract from the releases notes of Tcpip, here is the logical

ECO M 2-MAY-2003 Alpha and VAX

Problem:

FTP> connect host 10021 (non-standard server port) can result in
rejection of data connections from server:
%TCPIP-E-FTP_DATACONF, cannot establish data connection with
remote host
-SYSTEM-F-REJECT, connect to network object rejected
Connecting using the FTP command line, using passive-mode
transfers, or setting the TCPIP$FTP_ALLOW_PORT_REDIRECT logical
all avoid the problem.

Deliverables:

TCPIP$FTP_CLIENT.EXE V5.3-18M

Reference:

PTR 70-5-2296 / CFS.99537 / Req Id: HPAQH08XR / UCX Note 9756

Re: FTP between VMS and Unix/linux

Cheroux,

If youre in FTP, give
FTP> SET PASSIVE ON

This should do the trick. Ik know it started somewhere in an IP version.

$ COPY/FTP/PASSIVE=ON ....

etc
