    ftp at school on imac
    At school we work with imacs in network. the ftp is blocked. I don't know much of these things and i hope someone knows a backdoor to use ftp.
    only thing that i know for sure is that it is working with an http proxy tunnel

    What FTP program are you using? Did you try ftp from the terminal? Is your IP by DHCP or fixed? It's possible your dept is on a subnet that has ftp blocked I suppose. Are there other macs in the school other than the ones you use?

    Enable passive mode in your ftp client.
    This tells the firewall there that it's okay for the other server to make the connection with you.

    the network at school is half pc, half mac, all sorts of macs.
    I tried a program called transit i think, also tried to open the ftp in the browser.
    nothing works, i tried a lot of settings but can't connect
    maybe just try even more
