Description (last modified by dkocher)

I've encountered a situation where a site is apparently running a Microsoft FTP server and the only way to get in is to (a) use the -A option *and* (b) completely disable my firewall. The reason is the FTP server uses some high-numbered port in a random fashion, purportedly in the name of "security". (Microsoft's idea of security is to hide something somewhere thinking that it won't be found).

Is there anything you can do to enhance Cyberduck to avoid disabling the firewall?!


Here's the output I'm getting from that server (I have obfuscated private info about the server and other things below because it's private stuff):
