Comment (by soka):


  createDataSocket() -> createDataSocketPASV()

  "new FTPPassiveDataSocket(new Socket(ipAddress, port));"
 This line of code is causing trouble. In case of passive mode "new Socket"
 might time out. In that casel a ConnectException is thrown. This exception
 is not taken to consideration. The 'fallback' is only watching
 'FTPException' which in this case is not thrown, therefore there is no
 fallback to 'active' mode.

 imho the current implementation is not taking care of the timeout. To my
 understanding, according to
 j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/net/Socket.html#setSoTimeout(int), it would be
 possible to get a java.net.SocketTimeoutException.

 I'm not a huge java developer so this is just a suggestion, please drop it
 if it's not useful.
