How to Fix SX OS v1.5 FTP Error?

SX OS v1.5 added FTP server support and some users report that they get the error message “Failed to retrieve directory listing” when using FTP. How to fix the error?

First, FTP program has both ‘passive’ and ‘active’ modes. People have reported more success with ‘passive’ mode, check to see what mode you connecting with.

Second, having the file ‘ license-request.date’ on the root of microSD has been known to cause issue, please remove it from your PC/Mac firstly. You do not need it anyway once you completed the ‘verity license’ steps and are actively using SX OS on daily basis.

Third, FTP program have SSL, TLS, Auth, and NO SSL connection. Normally, NO SSL is the best.

Fourth, try another program, seems more errors have been reported with Filezilla, and more success and better speeds with WinSCP. Personally, my choice is ‘FlashFXP’, but an older, stable version, not the latest & greatest.

Fifth, could be ‘router’, ‘port’ problem, some windows and routers need to correctly ‘open/close’ the needed ports, its best these to have UPNP enabled on your wifi/router to handle this automatically.
