All outgoing connections from your Mac to the Internet are allowed by default on MacOS X unless you customized the firewall I have already checked the FTP access box in sharing but I presume that is for use if I am using my laptop as the ftp host?

Cyberduck and Fetch will work but only if I turn off the firewall I presume I must have some setting not right on my powerbook's firewall, since terrapin can get through the router and do its business.

I want to be able to access my iMac remotely using FTP. That opens up port 21 through the OS X firewall. My iMac is connected using AirPort, not an ethernet cable. Here's the interesting part: using Cyberduck, or using the command-line ftp client through terminal, I can connect to my "local" IP address I can reach the server and log in, but cannot get an 'ls' to work. It goes into "extended passive mode" and just hangs there. If I turn the OS X firewall off completely, it works like a charm.
