[Tutor] using ftplib

I'm trying to follow the python 2.1 bible "transferring files via FTP".
I'm using a XP, SUSE9.1, and a 4.1 FreeBSD OS's to learn on.
#test FTP LOGIN
the above code creates the file name "brssoserv.prg" with zero bytes on
the FTP host. The first issue is the "remote.sendcmd('PASV')" is command
unknown on the FreeBSD computer. What is the right command for the
freeBSD computer running python 2.1 and how did you discover what the
correct command is?
Next I get the following error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<input>", line 1, in ?
File "C:\Python23\lib\ftplib.py", line 415, in storbinary
conn = self.transfercmd(cmd)
File "C:\Python23\lib\ftplib.py", line 345, in transfercmd
return self.ntransfercmd(cmd, rest)
File "C:\Python23\lib\ftplib.py", line 327, in ntransfercmd
resp = self.sendcmd(cmd)
File "C:\Python23\lib\ftplib.py", line 241, in sendcmd
File "C:\Python23\lib\ftplib.py", line 212, in getresp
raise error_temp, resp
error_temp: 425 192.168.1.195
The above error is from the windows computer on the same network as the
FTP server. But I get similar errors from the other computers too. I
believe the 425 is a clue and thats the local IP address. But the
freeBSD does not give that the same error.
I can use FTP from all the computers and using standard commands:
all works without error. So I'm doing something wrong. I believe I am
following the book but there has to be something I'm missing.
BTW I have tried changing the 'STOR" to 'PUT' - again without success.
Thanks in advance
