(Help) FTP fails in Solaris 9 but not in Solaris 2.6

Our Sun E3500 server has been upgraded from Solaris 2.6 (105181-17 )
to Solaris 9 (112233-11). There are no changes in any of the FTP
binaries. We take & use all the default FTP binaries and values which
come with Solaris 9.
Our 3rd party FTP program, which extract and put datas to our E3500
server used to work when it's under Solaris 2.6. However, since the
OS upgraded to Solaris 9, we have been getting the following error
messages and the program fails. There's no change in the 3rd party
FTP program end.
We need help in resolving the problem. Specifically,
- Are there any latest FTP related patches for Solaris 9 ??
- We noticed the FTP solaris 9 uses different set of "ports" as
compared with that in solaris 2.6. Is it contributing to the problems
- In solaris 9 server , we see "in.ftpd -a" processes whereas in
solaris 2.6 server , we see "in.ftpd". Is there any difference ??
- In solaris 2.6 server , we see "226 ASCII Transfer complete"
message at the end of remote client ftp session window when he/she
performs a simple "ls" commands during the ftp session. However, in
solaris 9 server, we see "226 Transfer complete" message at the end of
remote client ftp session window
when he/she performs a simple "ls" commands during the ftp session.
Please note that, we didn't go with binary mode this time.
Why is there a difference between the 2 Transfer complete messages
above. Any FTP config files in Solaris 9 which control and determine
what completion messages are available ??
Thanks in advance for your help. Bill
