Along a similar thread, I just got ip masqerading going under 2.0.28, and I can do everything I expect to do from behind my "gateway", except when I try to retrieve files via ftp, I get the message (or something along the lines of): "no route for data". Now this is *after* I have logged in, so I do get information from the ftp server, but it refuses to 'get' files.

I don't have a problem on another machine of a friend, though. The setups are quite similar, though much playing is done with both machines. Anyone seen this?

(appolagies for not having the exact error message, I am stuck for a while on a 95 machine :-\ ).
