Cisco ASA 8.03 Outbound FTP Issue

When trying to connect to an ftp site, we never get the login prompt back. We have a Cisco ASA 5520 running 8.0.3. We can send to other ftp sites.

FTP works fine to the same site from 2 of our other locations, running Cisco Pix 515 6.3.

We do have the inspect ftp on the ASA and fixup ftp on the Pix's. I even added an acl entry on the ASA allowing anything from the ip address of the ftp server.

Since I am not seeing evidence of it being denied by the ASA, i am thinking that it may be a problem with the inspection engine.

Has anyone experiecned this? Any insight would be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

I have the same issue in my PIX 8.03. It seems that I did not have this problem when I had version 6.3x. Have you fixed you problem yet?

The problem was an acl on the ftp server itself.
