    FreeBSD and FTP


    Hi, I am trying to ftp from my webhost which is on a freebsd server to another ftp server. I can ftp from another unix host to my webhost, but not the other way around. When I try to ftp from the freebsd server, I always seem to get permission denied, even though I know I am using the right hostname, username, and password. Can anyone help me?

    TIA

    Your server needs to be setup to allow "FXP", "FTP Server-Server transfer", "FTP proxying", or whatever your control panel software calls it.

    It seems like your host does not allow this.
    You should ask your host about that.
