I am looking for help regarding to FTP connection to external FTP server. Client computer is located behind Cisco Firewall and FTP resides in ISP server. So the problem is connecting from our internal network to external networks FTP server.I can open FTP connection to server but whenever I try to transfer data, I get 425 error. Probably another stupid mistake, but I cannot identify the problem correctly. I am using Service-policy which is inspecting FTP protocol. My guess is that this is related to NAT. I have debugged and looked at TCP translation and this one is made from my(client) computer to external FTP server.
Attached configuration file.
X.X.X.X reffers to our public IP.
TCP translations regarding FTP connection :
%ASA-6-302303: Built TCP state-bypass connection 50120 from Outside:126.96.36.199/21 (188.8.131.52/21) to Inside:192.168.0.94/14327 (X.X.X.X /14327)
this is an ancient pix command that still works on my ASA 5520, this command uninspect the ftp traffic and would enable the DATA passing thru the ASA, remember that FTP is the only protocol that does not use OSI model to transfer (due the lack of knowledge of the Programing skills on the coder of FTP Protocol).
then you had 2 TCP ports (TCP-20 - for data, TCP-21 for control) and you might be using 2 of the formats of comunicating with the server (ACTIVE or PASSIVE).
if you'll using Passive (PASV command), then requires to create an dynamic port to receive the traffic comming from outside, and if you had enabled the inspect for protocol, you could find some troubles to get this done.
so try this and tell us how is going on.
best regards, had a great day, and please rate if you'll find this post useful

You do not EVER remove the FTP inspection if you are going through NAT and an ASA firewall.
Depending on the scenario (In this case the client inside the firewall) Active FTP will never EVER work. You will need to have a static translation for every client and allowing traffic statically to those clients on the inside network.
You ask to disable the FTP inspection? If you take a look at the log, a TCP state bypass session is created. It means that all inspections are being bypassed at this point inclunding the FTP one.
Check why the Bypass is configured and exclude the FTP traffic so the FTP inspection engine can work, I assure you that is the problem.
First I used Windows explorer to connect FTP serve. I can connect and transfer files but problem is related to Windows command line utility which cannot establish data connection. I can connect, login to FTP but unable to transfer file, list directory etc..
