[tahoe-dev] FTP client can't retrieve files and directories

Hello! My name is Mark Berger and I'm a freshmen at Stanford studying CS.
I've been playing around with tahoe after discovering the project through
GSoC, but I've run into a problem I can't figure out.

Currently I'm running tahoe on a virtual ubuntu box and it seems to be
working well until I try to enable ftp. I can authenticate with the server
using an accounts file but the directories and files within my folder
cannot be found. Files and directories do appear when I'm using the CLI.

Here is the log from FileZilla:

     Status: Retrieving directory listing...

     Command: PWD

     Response: 257 "/"

     Command: TYPE I

     Response: 200 Type set to I.

     Command: PASV

     Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (10,0,2,15,219,109).

     Command: LIST

     Response: 550 Requested action not taken: internal server error

     Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

     Response: 503 Incorrect sequence of commands: must send PORT or PASV
before RETR

>From tahoe's twisted log:

     timed out waiting for DTP connection

     Unexpected FTP error

     Unhandled error: Failure: twisted.protocols.ftp.PortConnectionError:
DTPFactory timeout

I don't think my problem is how I've configured the virtual server because
I'm able to access the pubgrid through a browser, but that could be my
problem. If anyone could help me solve this problem I'd really appreciate
Mark Berger
