My VOIP specialist complained about not being able to run backups of the Unity Express onto our FTP server (Microsoft FTP on Server 2008). I did a packet trace and observed some weird behavior that I think is even kind of funny in a way.
The Unity FTP client is able to initiate both control and data connections with no problem, even being able to
LIST directories and
CWD into them. But as soon as the client sends a
SYST command (not sure why it cares), the server replies with "Windows_NT" and lo and behold...the client immediately sends a
QUIT command! I've seen this happen consistently on my packet captures.
I tried pointing the Unity FTP client to a FileZilla FTP server, and viola...it worked fine!
Has anyone else observed this? I thought it was kinda funny, being that Cisco seems to not like Microsoft that much...
