Hello,

I am running ISE Enterprise 2004 FW Client and I'm getting the following error when using a command line FTP:

"ftp: bind :Can't assign requested address"

when attempting to list the directory contents of the server. This occurs whether in active or passive mode.

The problem doesn't exist when using a GUI based FTP Client such as WS-FTP or Windows Commander.

The problem is exactly the same when using the 2004 client against ISA 2000 or 2004 Server. Using the 2000 FW Client works fine with the same 2000 Server.

I'd really appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Karl

Hi Karl,

What FTP site? Hard to test without knowing the site.

Thanks!
Tom

Hi Tom,

ftp.symantec.com, ftp.microsoft.com as well as many others. All work with WS-FTP, Total Commander, etc.

Please see example:

D:\public>ftp ftp.microsoft.com

ftp> literal pasv

ftp> dir
> ftp: bind :Can't assign requested address

Thanks for the help.

Best regards,

Karl

After a little experimenting I was able to get the FWC 2000 working with the 2004 ISA Enterprise Server. A complete ftp script to get the latest antivirus defs from Symantec is once again possible, although I would much rather prefer to use FWC 2004.

The FWC 2004 Client still has problems with command line FTP directory and list commands. With GUI based FTP clients all commands function properly.

Can someone please do an FTP directory listing (ftp.symantec.com) to verify that there is nothing wrong with DOS oriented sessions.

Thanks.

Best regards,

Karl Schick

Hello All,

I'd really appreciate it if someone could verify that a DOS command line FTP can perform a listing (dir, list)with a FWC 2004 / 2004 Server.

Thanks in advance,

Karl

BTW --- thanks for the tip! I didn't knew the FTP command line client could do passive mode FTP with the 'literal pasv' command.

Make sure you exclude the external IPs of your ISA servers from the LAT (local address table).  I had the same problem and this resolution works.  Here's MS solution...

Hi macpa,

ISA server is a full blown firewall by design and should therefore be used as such. So, make sure it has at least 2 NICs and things will start working!

Hi

We're also having this problem.  We have ISA2006 enterprise as a backend firewall so it's got cards on the internal network, inter array and DMZ.  The DMZ nic IP is in the routing table on the ISA server but only with the loop back address so I'm assuming that this is automatically inserted?
