Topic "FTP SSL/TLS Implicit encryptions, more ports then 990?"

hi.

Im behind a very strict firewall and have opened up 990 to be able to connect to a host FTP server.

I can connect (the host server sees that I am connected) but I get a error that I cant list folders.
When trying to upload a file I get an error

So, my question is this:
Does WINSCP use one port to connect to the server , and another for actual data transfer?
If so, is it a random port or can it be locked down to say 991?

Thanks
Eon

"Copy files to remote side failed, cant open data connection".

With FTP protocol the server connects back to client for data transfers. Try switching to passive more to circumvent that.
