WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

227 FTP response code

Updated May 3, 2017

Overview

This article explains why the 227 FTP response code is sent.

Environment

All Serv-U versions

Detail

This is the response given by the server to the PASV command. It indicates that the server is ready for the client to connect to it for the purpose of establishing a data connection. The format of this response is important because the client software must be capable of parsing out the connection information it contains. The values h1 to h4 are the IP addresses that the server is listening on. The values p1 to p2 are used to calculate the port that the server is listening on using the following formula: PASV port = (p1 * 256) + p2.

Example response

227 Entering Passive Mode (h1, h2, h3, h4, p1, p2)

Possible command

PASV
