Posted: February 6, 2013 in FTP

Some times we will get the error “ Failed to retrieve directory listing ” while trying to connect FTP .

ftp-directory-listing-issue

Most of the time its because of the missing ftp kernel module ” ip_conntrack_ftp ”

1) Check if the ftp kernel module is exists

lsmod | grep ftp

2) Add the module

modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp

3 ) Restart ftp server

This will fix your issue !!
