FTP connection (with and without VPN after Tor)

I use ftp (the CLI) to connect to my site.

With Tor before VPN, after the authorization, I type


and then I can successfully run any ftp command: ls, dir, get, put etc.

When I try that with a standard Whonix-Workstation, running any command after passive fails. It displays the following and halts

227 Entering Passive Mode

And if I don’t use passive:

230 OK. Current restricted directory is /
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp> ls
500 I won’t open a connection to (only to [ --redacted-- ])
ftp: bind: Address already in use

Save deal with FileZilla - connection is established (either with plain FTP or with an Explicit FTP over TLS), but fails with

Command: MLSD
Error: Connection timed out
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

Thanks Patrick but there isn’t much content in this link. I did install FileZilla using

sudo apt-get install filezilla

The results of trying to use it are described above.

I have the same problem. Did you ever get it fixed?

Nothing changed whatsoever and I don’t expect any changes whatsoever either.

FTP seems tricky because the way it works and also the limits of how you can connect over Tor see:
