Subject: ftp option PASV

        I've been mucking with the passive option and have found a machine that
at least thinks it understands the option. Me, I'm not so sure.
        When I send it the PASV command, the server responds:

            227 Data transfers will passively listen to 128,127,2,150,p1,p2

(p1,p2 being the port), which makes sense except that 128,127,2,150 is
*my* address.
        Now, as I read the RFC(959), shouldn't the server send it's own
address and port it's listening on? If I'm misunderstanding, please let me
know; if I'm correct, can anyone tell me of a host that does implement PASV
correctly so I can test it??

                                        Thanks much
