FTP 425 Cannot open data connection

    Question

  • Client 1a OS:         Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard w/ Service Pack 1
    Full Computer Name:    puma.client1.local
    Domain:                client1.local

    Client 1b OS:        Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition w/ Service Pack 2
    Full Computer Name:    leopard.client1.local
    Domain:                client1.local

    Client 2 OS:         Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard w/ Service Pack 1
    Full Computer Name:    rwapps.client2.local
    Domain:                client2.local

    Server OS:            Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard w/ Service Pack 2
    Full Computer Name:    webserver.corp.company.com
    Domain:                corp.company.com

    I am remotely connected to Client 1a and I am trying to copy a file via FTP from the Server to Client 1a. I have Command Prompt running as administrator and have entered the following commands:

    C:\Windows\system32>ftp ftp.company.com
    User (ftp.company.com:(none)): ravi
    331 User name okay, need password.
    Password:
    230 User logged in, proceed.
    ftp> get ftp-svr\ftp\snapshot.cab
    200 PORT Command successful.
    150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for snapshot.cab (229222 Bytes).
    425 Cannot open data connection.

    If I am remotely connected to Client 1b and enter the same commands, the FTP file transfer is successful.
    If I am remotely connected to Client 2 and enter the same commands, the FTP file transfer attempt results in the same error.

    Can anyone help me with this please?

    PS. I work in the IT department for corp.company.com so I have full access to the webserver.
