1. D'oh - you are quite right - was so carried away by the error message.

Questions 2 & 3 are still worth answering, though?

    Well, the 502 Illegal PORT Command error is obviously holding up the data-connection portion of the FTP session.
    Your script is telling the server to send data from its FTP data-port (20 I assume) to your client's TCP port 53155.

    FYI, the Syntax of the PORT command: h1, h2, h3, h4, p1, p2. EG: Calculation of the local socket-port is done like this:
    p1*256+p2 = (207*256)+163 = 53155.

    It could be a privileged/restricted ports issue -- Though that would give a 'permission denied' error (I would have thought).

    For the record, 99% of all FTP data-connections are NAT/Firewall/socket-binding issues. Heh.

    You didn't state whether you were *actually* able to upload/download successfully via your system ftp program either.

    Google is good for FTP connection flow-charts etc...
