I am having trouble connecting to galaxy project through an FTP server since the protocol change was implemented. I have tried cyberduck and filezilla, and followed the video here: to make sure that my filezilla settings were correct. Here is the log from filezilla:

Thank you for any help. I have tried changing my password and this did not help.

Please post this over at Galaxy biostars.

Are you working behind a firewall (that is not local on your machine)?

I have posted on galaxy biostars. Thank you for your reply- It is behind a medical center firewall, but this was not previously an issue when connecting with just a FTP protocol. Could there be any other things I could try?

This post seems to indicate that your firewall may be having trouble with MLSD commands. I would suggest checking with your local firewall admins to see if they have any suggestions.
