This is indeed an issue with the latest firmware 2.6.1. If the user has tried to use passive mode with the built in FTP server the existing session goes into an unrecoverable state that can lead to a reboot or stalled connection (even if the user turns off the passive connection.)

The only workaround is to
1) not use passive mode during an FTP transfer to the MultiCom router
2) if, after logging into the FTP server of the MultiCom you are in passive mode, turn it off before interacting with the server (before using get, put, ls... commands).

If you had indeed tried interacting with the MultiCom and failed (receiving errors like those shown below)
Code:
150 Waiting for connection (10,0,0,22,7,31).
Passive mode refused.
τς425 Error creating file

Close the entire FTP session with the "exit" or "quit" command of FTP and reopen a new session. Transfers not using the passive command will work as expected.
