I think I've come across a little bug in wget when using it to get a file
via ftp.

I did not specify the "passive" option, yet it appears to have been used
anyway.... Here's a short transcript:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] sim390]$ wget ftp://musicm.mcgill.ca/sim390/sim390dm.zip
--21:05:21--  ftp://musicm.mcgill.ca/sim390/sim390dm.zip
           => `sim390dm.zip'
Resolving musicm.mcgill.ca... done.
Connecting to musicm.mcgill.ca[]:21... connected.

Cannot initiate PASV transfer.
==> PORT ... done.    ==> RETR sim390dm.zip ... done.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] sim390]$ man wget

As you can see, PASV was attempted (and failed)

I was looking for an option to prevent passive mode.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] sim390]$ wget --version
GNU Wget 1.8.2

Running on Fedora Core 1.
