Subject Active vs Passive performance
Date Wed, 05 Nov 2008 22:09:13 GMT
Has anyone noticed a difference in performance between FTPing in Active 
mode vs. Passive mode?

I have two laptops on the same network:
1) Client - Windows Vista, firewall disabled, using FileZilla
2) Apache FTPServer - Windows XP, firewall disabled

When FileZilla is set to passive it is relatively fast.  When I switch 
it to active it is 2 times to 3 times slower. 

I've done quite a bit of research and playing around but I haven't been 
able to determine why.  I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this 
for me...
