    How to set passive mode for ftp?


    I had this set, but I can't find it, and I'm guessing an update reverted the setting...

    I'm trying to ftp to my FireTV, so I have a link in explorer to "ftp://192.168.1.4*Tongueort#" and it was working fine, but now it's telling me I need to set passive mode. I've googled all over and I can't find anything showing how to set it in Windows 10.

    Any help?

    :)

  3. Lumia Display Dock and HDMI to VGA adapter

    just to understand some constraints:

    • HDMI is electrically compatible with DVI
    • DP outputs from most PCs have an HDMI compatibility mode that allows for:
      • DP-to-HDMI passive adapters [passive means it just uses wiring (no ICs) between the connectors]
      • DP-to-DVI passive adapters
    • In contrast, the USB Type-C output on the Lumia 950XL/950 phone and the DP output on the Display Dock do not have HDMI compatibility mode. To drive HDMI, DVI (or VGA), they require active adapters incorporating bridge ICs. The tipoff is usually that such
      an adapter costs $20-$40 instead of ~$10 for a passive adapter. There’s no good way to tell active versus passive other than by part # and spec.

    How to set passive mode for ftp?

    The Windows FTP command-line client (ftp.exe) does not support the passive mode, on any version of Windows. It makes it pretty useless nowadays due to ubiquitous firewalls and NATs. get the free https://filezilla-project.org/ thats great little prog

    You'll note that I stated I'm using the file explorer, not a command line. Filezilla certainly works, but it's very simple to setup a link in explorer for a quick ftp w/o having to install and use an outside program.

    I have found the answer (after way too many hours searching). The easy way is to search for "Internet Options" in the Win10 search, and that will provide a link to the older style options. For some reason I can't find a way to access this in the newer Win10 config menus. Then it's "Advanced" and in there you'll find a "Passive FTP" check box. Problem solved...finally.
