When a client requests and receives a file from an Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 FTP server, it issues an 'ABOR' command to close the connection. At that point, if the client immediately tries to request another file, the IIS FTP server fails to respond properly by setting up the new connection. Instead, it issues an unexpected "425 Can't Open Data Connection" error message.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
