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
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??
