How do I FTP out?

    I know enough to be semi dangerous with Linux, but I am having the damndest time making an outbound FTP connection to my remote backup server.

    My server is from 1and1 (Business Root II) and I have disabled the 1n1 firewall and the Plesk firewall is deactivated, but always get a timeout error when I try and connect to my 1n1 remote FTP site (for backups).

    I am using this command ftp backupxxx.secure-online.com

    It sits there for about 60 sec then tells me the "Connect: Connection timed out".

    Is there anything I can do or that I am doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Try use passive mode (ftp -p I think).

    Also try sftp instead of ftp.

    Ok, I just tried them both and still no dice. I know the FTP server works, because I can connect to it from my home computer.

    Anyone else?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    maybe port is altered for hehe security reasons? not 21, but say 4021..:) try nmap to check which are opened.
    # nmap [remote IP]
    Starting Nmap 4.20 ( http://insecure.org ) at 2008-03-03 09:19 NOVT
    Interesting ports on HOATNAME (REMOTE_IP):
    Not shown: 1692 closed ports
    22/tcp open ssh
    25/tcp open smtp
    53/tcp open domain
    199/tcp open smux
    587/tcp open submission

    if found nothing, check your ISP or whoever is in the middle with tcptraceroute
