ftp no route to host

my os is suse12sp5, there's no ftp. and stop the firewall. I can ping the distination ip succussfully.
try this cmd, ftp xxx.xx.xx.xx. then I entered user and password.
console returns as follow:

230 loggin succuss
max-retries exceed
fatal error: no route to host.

Then I down the os version to suse11, ftp connect succussfully.
would you please help me to solve this problem?

    @kun Hi and welcome to the Forum :)
    Perhaps add some debug or try active mode to provide more information.

    ftp -A -d xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    Could be the version of ftp running on the remote host as well, some incompatibility especially security, what is running on the remote vsftpd, other?

  • downgrade to suse11 ,ftp to the third party worked
    on suse12,we use lftp.

  • lftp
    set passive-mod off
