Although it is a bit overkill, netscape also does its ftps passively.
The original poster said he had Unix covered. For those that don't,
then I'd like to pass on a reminder that the patches for the standard
4.3bsd ftp client can be found on my home page (URL below), as well
as passive-port-quarantine patches for wu-ftpd and a PORT quarantine
FreeBSD 2.0's ftp client will do passive by default if argv=='p'.
I thus suspect that my patch made it into 4.4lite (some of the patched areas
sure look familiar in freebsd-2.0). Can anyone confirm or deny?
