    im currently in china n trying to access an ftp that i once had located in the states. But for some reason the chinese government blocked my access to the website and the FTP directly. I am using a proxy server right now to access the website but i cant access the FTP server with it. Could use some help...

    which client are you using? Try putting your ftp prog into PASV (Passive) mode.

    The great firewall of China strikes again.


    How much control over the FTP server do you have? Could you call someone in the states and have them change the port it is running on?
