ftp over ssh tunneling problems

hello!

I use putty to tunnel ftp over ssh to a remote server. while
http-tunneling works fine, ftp makes following problems:

STATUS:>  	Resolving host name localhost.
STATUS:>  	Host name localhost resolved: ip = 127.0.0.1.
STATUS:>  	Getting listing "/www"...
STATUS:>  	Connecting to ftp server localhost:4444 (ip = 127.0.0.1)...
STATUS:>  	Socket connected. Waiting for welcome message...
		220 Spot ist online und bereit f�r neuen Wahnsinn...

COMMAND:>	LIST
STATUS:>  	Connecting ftp data socket xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:3969...
ERROR:>   	Can't connect to remote server. Socket error = #10060.
ERROR:>   	Failed to establish data socket. 

I allready tried several ftp-clients (all in passive mode) and ports.

Alex,

You will probably find that few FTP servers honour the PASV :port 
command because of security implications.  If you are admin of the FTP 
server you may be able to find a configuration that allows this to 
happen.  Your best bet is to use SFTP as this works seemlessly over the 
SSH tunnel.  A good SFTP client for windows is WinSCP, or just use the 
OpenSSH SFTP CLI.
