Has anyone had FTP work for them when not in "passive" mode since
this configuration change was made?
My site's got a clunky old ftp-based mirror script in use which at
first glance doesn't seem to know anything about passive mode, and it
hasn't fetched any new RFCs since a month ago. Running ftp directly
(over ipv4, from a couple of machines, one of which has no ipv6
configuration and no recent software changes) doesn't work either,
commands like LIST get back "failed to establish connection"
I'm probably going to throw away the mirror script anyway and switch
to rsync, but I'm still curious to know whether this is some weird
problem with our configuration (maybe a surprise related to the ipv6
changes?), or an intentional (but unannounced?) or unintentional
configuration change in ftp support at the server side....
