Synopsis

ip ftp passive
no ip ftp passive

Configures

Passive FTP mode

Default

Disabled (normal FTP)

Description

This command configures the router to use passive FTP. Passive FTP is often used when connecting through firewalls or access lists that block normal FTP connections. With passive FTP, the file transfer session originates from the client, not the server, which makes firewalls more likely to allow it. You may need to use passive FTP when copying a file or image to an FTP server.
