I'm relatively new to FTP. My friend and I are attempting to collaborate on a project. He has created an FTP server but, when I connect through the Atom editor's "Remote FTP" package, I'm given the error
unable to parse PASV server response. Upon further research, this error doesn't seem to be an error specific to Atom but a broader error defined by the FTP protocol. I also couldn't connect through WinSCP and, after switching to FileZilla, was able to get FTP working. I would rather have Atom's FTP package work for convenience. Could someone explain the meaning of the error and what can be done to fix it?
I receive this error in WinSCP:
Timeout detected. (control connection) Could not retrieve directory listing Error listing directory '/'.
My friend's server is actually a router running Advanced Tomato. There is an external storage device plugged into the USB port where all the files are located.
