SUMMARY: Can't "get" a file after ftp into host

The fix for this was to use binary mode instead of ascii mode to do the get file 

So, at the ftp prompt 

ftp> binary

and that allowed the download to work.


Here is my original question

I can ftp into a solaris 9 machine just fine as a regular 
user but when I issue
a get command I get this error

421 Service not available, remote server timed out. Connection closed

Anyone  have any ideas on why this happens?

Thanks  much!
