Please note FTP has 2 modes, Active and Passive. Unfortunately MS command-line FTP client is crippled as it only supports Active, which is almost always blocked by Firewalls. You can use MS command-line FTP client only if you have no firewalls and if your PC has a public Internet IP address.

You can use DriveHQ FileManager 4.0 client, which has a lot of great features and generally much faster than regular FTP client.

You can also use Windows Explorer to access DriveHQ FTP service, just enter the path:

DriveHQ Command FTP is designed to replace the default Windows FTP client. It has the following advantages:

  • 1. It supports both active and passive mode FTP.
  • 2. It supports FTP over SSL (FTPS & FTPES) and SFTP.
  • 3. It supports automatic resuming/retrying.
  • 4. It supports data compression and encryption.
  • 5. It supports downloading/uploading folders.
  • 6. It supports mirroring/synchronizing folders.
  • 7. It supports event logging for auditing and trouble shooting.
  • 8. It can send email reports after an operation.
  • 9. It supports more powerful FTP scripts.

If FTP is blocked by your firewall, you can try SFTP.
