  I am trying to set up a FTP server through windows XP
pro. I am using a dynamic dns client (no-ip.com). I am
using port 8181 to set up the FTP server. I have
anonymous access disabled, so only the administrator can
log onto the ftp server. I have shared the ftp folder in
the intepub directory. When I try to connect to the ftp
server in WS_FTP LE, I get the following error message

WINSOCK.DLL: WinSock 2.0
WS_FTP LE 5.08 2000.01.13, Copyright 1992-2000

Any suggestions? It looks like my computer freaks out
with the whole passive thing, but if I don't use a
passive connection in the FTP client, I can't connect at
all. Please help! Thanks
