What is the difference between Active and Passive FTP?
FTP can work in two very different modes, based on who initiates the Data connection between the Server and the Client.
1. Active mode (PORT)
If the data connection is initiated by the Server, the FTP connection is active
If the Client initiates the Data connection the FTP connection is passive.
All browsers are by default configured to work in passive mode when used as FTP clients.
