    is very well explained in article...

    It is clear to me. However, I thought disabling passive FTP in network
    preferences (also) disables ports 137, 138 and 139 (M$ Netbios).
    I leave PASV off and I can still download using FTP.

    What is your preferred setting?

  2. HTTP or SFTP.

    Traditional FTP must die. It is a nightmare for firewall administrators
    and it forces us to set things up much less securely than they should be.

    Cheers,
