OSX FTP Cli problem

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I was wondering if somebody could help me.

I'm trying to connect to an ftp server from the command line in OSX 10.3.5 (work machine), it seems to connect fine but that's where the problems start.

If i try to run the 'ls' command it says "Entering extended PASV mode" then eventually spits out "425 Unable to build data connection: No route to host".

The problem isn't server- side because i can connect to it from the Command Prompt in Windows, it's only when i use OSX i get the problems.

Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this?

    Check the box "use passive FTP" in the Proxies panel of the Network Preferences.
