I just installed an ASA 5510 and got just about everything I needed on it working such as DHCP server, remote client VPN and some public servers accessible that sit on the inside network. I configured everything with ASDM since I am new to Cisco ASA.
Today I discovered that I can't download ftp files from workstations on the inside interface. I have searched a lot and this seems to be a somewhat common issue, but none of the things I have tried will make it work. In general, I have seen that if these commands are in the ASA it should work:
ftp mode passive
They are, but it still won't work. Here is an example of a failed ftp session:
brandon-svecs-computer:~ bsvec$ ftp XX.X.249.145
Connected to XX.X.249.145.
220-FileZilla Server version 0.9.23 beta
220 Welcome to NexAira Engineering FTP Site/

ftp> get Cbeyond\ ML3.zip
local: Cbeyond ML3.zip remote: Cbeyond ML3.zip
227 Entering Passive Mode (XX,XX,249,145,7,50)
150 Connection accepted
0% | | 0 0.00 KiB/s --:-- ETA
Then it just sits there. One strange thing is that one of these sessions seems to have worked after 15-20 minutes when I forgot about it..
Similarly in windows the ftp download will fail through browser or command line, but on one ocassion a file downloaded 20 minutes later..
I attached my config. Any help is much appreciated.
