    When my Pocket PC is in it's cradle (connect to the desktop pc) i can't connect to any ftp sites on the desktop pc.

    However when i remove it, i attempt to connect to an ftp site and it works.

    This is the log from wsftp pro when i attempt to connect when the pocket pc is in the cradle:

    It is not just wsftp that does this, it any program which uses ftp. E.g. i cannot download from ftp addresses in my browsers or download managers while it is in the cradle.

    Im really confused. :confused:

    connect to glaanieboy.dyndns.org with user test and password test. This way I can see my logs for any strange things that might popup during connection. Note, this FTP dir is empty and will be removed after we have finished testing.

    You did not login using the user and password I provided in my previous post (both 'test'). Please try again.

    I forgot to enter a user + pass on my first try. Then i tried with the user and pass and it gave the error above. Then i restarted my pc and now it will let me on. Wierd :confused:

    Thanks very much for your help though, i'll let you know if it happens again.

    sounds like pasv mode is on and they have port forwarding enabled. turn off pasv mode and see if it happens
