227 entering passive mode ftp connect connection timed out – How we nailed it

The File Transfer Protocol is a network protocol providing functionality for file access, file transfer, and file management.

In addition, FTP operates in either active or a passive mode.

Due to the wrong passive port range configuration settings on the server side, the customer may cause an error like,

"227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,1,2,118,151).
ftp: connect: Connection timed out"

Today, we’ll see the reason for this error and how it is fixed by our Support Engineers as part of our Server Management Services.
