    I have been trying to connect to my ftp for an hour, after finding out that my server does not support passive mode so i have to connect using active mode.

    I have never used active mode.

    Are there any benefits from either one?
    Which is better?

    Not sure

    Hi, I'm not sure, but passive seems better for dealing with firewalls.
    My problem is that I keep getting a 'connection lost' error when up/downloading.
    But good luck with the active ( port ) access!
