they could be blocking it at their end without even realising
or it could be at your end, e.g your firewall blocking the transfer (or antivirus program or similar)

WD calculates the ET normally from stations that provide solar data
it should at least be doing that
I will see if I can figure out why it is not when I have a spare minute

I currently do not have it where the ET value is requested or used from the weather hawk dll input

Hi Brian,

I've just tried passive mode but it gave the same result:

227 Entering Passive Mode (91,222,9,10,121,19)
STOR customclientraw.txt
150 Accepted data connection
301: Interrupted.
FTP Uploading C:\wdisplay\webfiles\clientraw.txttemp - >clientraw.txt
500 Unknown command
141: FTP protocol error: 500 Unknown command

However in passive mode it seems to show more clearly that the problem is at their end by the fact that the server appears to accept the connection but then times out as shown by the following lines:

150 Accepted data connection
301: Interrupted.

I've also tried SFTP using port 22 but it just says 'connection refused' so I suspect that it's not enabled on my account.

I'll get onto them in the morning with the log files as it's clear that it's not WD, my computer or broadband at fault.

Many Thanks,

Is there a solution to see the evapotranspiration value in WeatherDisplay for non-Davis stations?

often that is due to a time out
and is often related to server problems

it could even be a firewall blocking it or similar
WD Questions / FTP problem
« Last post by bitsostring on Today at 08:57:57 PM »
Moved WD to a new computer recently and shortly thereafter started having FTP problems. Haven't changed any settings. . .

Runs ok for 10, 20 , 40 mins and then shows upload "interrupted" , which can last for a minute or for half an hour. Messages include:

"450 Transfer aborted. Link to file server lost"


"150 Opening ASCII mode data connection
Logging off from server"

Any ideas? Sample logfile attached.

its clearly a problem on their end, if they deny it
the port number is an assigned port number, initiated by the server
normally that only happens with passive mode (i.e a dynamic port is used)
hence I was suggest to have passive mode in use

the fact they do not know about this sort of thing is troublesome

Hi Brian,

I'm not sure about secure FTP, but they did get me to try port 22 but it failed to connect.

They setup a new account because they couldn't get my old account to connect however the problem continues.

I've just tried filezilla as I am adding a twitter box to my index page whilst I get this sorted and it gave the following error:

Status:   Resolving address of
Status:   Connecting to
Status:   Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status:   Initializing TLS...
Error:   Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error:   Could not connect to server
Status:   Disconnected from server
Status:   Delaying connection for 5 seconds due to previously failed connection attempt...

Hmm thats funny as it seems strangely similar to WDs behaviour:

150 Connecting to port 51021
301: Interrupted.

Real Time Clientraw FTP freezes for about 60 secs at 150 Connecting to port 51021 before giving the 301: Interrupted error.

It seems Real Time Clientraw FTP tries with all it's might to connect but the server times out the connection.

Also they said that I was trying to connect to port '51021' instead of 21 is this correct or is 51021 just a random number created by Real Time Clientraw FTP.

I've noticed that the website seems slower than usual and I can't find any problems my end so I'm tempted to send off my WD FTP logs and Filezilla log to show them that their server clearly has a problem as three FTP clients are having problems connecting and are all displaying the same errors.

its not clear if you have tried copying the .exe files from the working directory to the original directory

the first number is the outdoor temperature
the second number is the temperature reading (C) of sensor used for the night time cloud reading

so that looks like a problem
