Standard mode FTP and Passive mode FTP.

I know the differences in working. But can any one tell me where is each used?

And, who decides which mode of FTP I will be using if I happen to dowload something.

Kindly help.

Regds,

Nikh.

Re: Standard mode FTP and Passive mode FTP.

My take on this is its related with the firewall in usage, checkout the following RFC for more details.
