Passive Property  

Enable passive file transfers.


object.Passive [= {True | False} ]


The Passive property enables or disables passive file transfers between the local and server. In passive transfer mode, the client is responsible for establishing the data connection between the server and the local system. If the local system is behind a firewall or NAT router, it is recommended that you set this property to True.

Note that not all servers support passive file transfers. If the Passive property is set and the server does not support passive mode, an error will be returned the next time a file transfer is attempted.
