Many thanks to all who replied. Especially Brian and Wally.

Consensus is Solaris does not support passive ftp untill 2.9. Most recommended getting ncFTP. I will probably do just that. Others recommend using Netscape as it does ftp in passive by default.

HOWEVER, there IS a way...

Using the command ftp>quote pasv Worked beautifully from all versions we are running, and succesfully put ftp into passive mode. 

Thank you all.

The NEW Netscape 7.0 browser is now available. Upgrade now!
