My client application swaps between two FTP servers when errors occur.
The second server is still IIS/5 and the logs show that passive ports are
always incrementing, not being immediately re-used, and the ICS FTP
client software works fine.  

The passive port pool seems to have been added by 'NGB' but I don't know
who that is, or why he decided to re-use ports, there are no relevant
comments.  Is there any reason why I should not change it to use
incrementing ports within the passive pool range? 

BTW, the port issue effects consecutive downloads as well as uploads.
