  • Use Passive FTP
    When passive FTP is used, the server opens a port and the client connects to the server. Passive FTP is preferable where there is a firewall between the client and the server.

Although some firewalls can parse the FTP data requests and allow active FTP connections, many require passive FTP connections.
