FTP and 4.3BSD

Since converting to 4.3BSD I have been having problems using ftp to
parcvax.xerox.com (i have discovered this problem at no other
sites, yet). I can connect to the site fine, login anonymous,
ls works -- but "dir" and the "*get" functions hang, finally timeout
with the message "connection reset by peer". This behaviour is
exhibited on all hosts on our internal network also.

Here is a sample:

<burdvax:2> 101% ftp parcvax.xerox.com
Connected to parcvax.xerox.com.
220 parcvax.xerox.com FTP server (Version 4.105 Mon Jun 2 17:55:28 PDT 1986) ready.
Name (parcvax.xerox.com:starner): anonymm,oouuss
331 Guest login ok, send ident as password.
230 Guest login ok, access restrictions apply.
ftp> ls
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening data connection for /bin/ls (,1133) (0 bytes).
226 Transfer complete.
143 bytes received in 1.9 seconds (0.072 Kbytes/s)
ftp> dir
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening data connection for /bin/ls (,1134) (0 bytes).
netin: Connection reset by peer
226 Transfer complete.
ftp> quit
221 Goodbye.
<burdvax:2> 102%

Does this problem seem familiar to anyone? I can ftp to other 4.3 sites,
4.2 sites, TENEX, etc.... with no problem.

Also, I can get files using a Xerox 1109 using TCP/IP from parcvax.
But not from any of my unix hosts on my network.

Any hints anyone can give would be appreciated.
