I'm having a problem (blocking problem) with FTP from the command line. It is in Passive mode but a firewall is blocking the ports and I don't know how to switch it to Active mode.

I don't see a help option for active mode:

Commands may be abbreviated. Commands are:

! cr mdir proxy send
$ delete mget sendport site
account debug mkdir put size
append dir mls pwd status
ascii disconnect mode quit struct
bell form modtime quote system
binary get mput recv sunique
bye glob newer reget tenex
case hash nmap rstatus trace
ccc help nlist rhelp type
cd idle ntrans rename user
cdup image open reset umask
chmod lcd passive restart verbose
clear ls private rmdir ?
close macdef prompt runique
cprotect mdelete protect safe

Any ideas how to switch?

Just by typing 'passive' again will turn off passive mode. It is a little hard to find.

I ran into the passive problem before and learned of this command. I think it could of been communicated better via help.
