Command: PORT 192,168,43,27,227,138 Response: 500 Illegal PORT command. Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

When I try connecting with my workspace terminal it works fine , but giving this error when tried in Filezilla.
Status: Logged in
Status: Retrieving directory listing…
Status: Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Passive mode failed.
Command: PORT 192,168,43,27,227,138
Response: 500 Illegal PORT command.

Hey…IP addresses use full stops…not commas. Also, the crio workspace only allows certain port numbers to be accessed…go through the milestone instructions properly to change the port at which your FTP server works

I have copied the instructions from the Milestone3 and also checked for any repetition.
My server is running on port 8081 only (which i have verified also).
Dont know why this error is occuring in Filezilla.

What is the host you’ve given in filezilla

The hostname is My workspace IP

Solved this problem

ANS : Go to passive mode setting in Filezilla and select “Use server external ip address instead”
