FTP & Chipp's FTP'r

Hi all,

In my continued testing of Rev's FTP I have so far been unable to get a file
transfer to a specialized FTP server. Incidentally, I tested with Chipp's
FTP'r mini-app as well but received identical results since at the lowest
level the ultimate command used to accomplish the transfer was identical.

Basically, with these particular servers, the login and password stuff
works, but the transfer never happens. The interesting part is that with
virtually any normal FTP client the transfer works fine, and iShell allows
the transfer seamlessly - using the exact same command structure e.g. Choose
the file, then use the ftp://user:password@ipaddress/filename.extension

Could this be some difference in "active/passive" mode FTP that is
happening? Otherwise what could be different about the way iShell is
handling FTP and the way Rev does?

Thoughts appreciated.
