A client of mine receives this error message:

Does CkFTP2 support PRET or can you add this feature?
From some research it appears that PRET is a non-standard vendor specific proprietary extension to FTP, without a proper spec and no RFC. The Filezilla dev refuses to touch it for that reason, and I'm not sure if Chilkat would have any interest for the same reasons (but only Chilkat can answer that).
A workaround seems to be using Active mode instead of Passive (if that's possible in your scenario).
Yes, I understand.
I will see if he can use active.
Gert, I'll do some research too... :)
