Still no joy. Is it possible that this setting only applies to Windows 2003 server R2?

@SmallClanger - Well, I tried WireShark. I can see the packet that sends the MLSD command over the passive port, but it doesn't get a response. It just times out. When I do this from a workstation, no problem. To another site with passive port < 5000, no problem. So WireShark just reports what I already know. I just can't figure out why the high ports are blocked.

Thanks alexm. I had already ran across and tried this KB article (support.microsoft.com/kb/196271) that outlined the fix you noted. I added the registry key, but it doesn't appear to correct the issue. Still, this appears to be exactly the cause of the problem. I'll continue to investigate.

Thanks SmallClanger. I'm familiar with WireShark, although hardly expert, so I didn't think of that. Will give it a try.
