I didn't say it, Sam did. :-) But I agree with him. Active mode is
becoming deprecated and it would take extraordinary effort for Medusa to
support it 100%.
The most used FTP clients these days are browsers such as Netscape and
IE. They always run in passive mode; in fact you can't turn off passive
mode. "wget" runs in passive mode if you use the --passive-ftp option.
Almost every FTP client you find on freshmeat or download.com supports
passive FTP, including WS_FTP and FTP Explorer.
At least in Mandrake 7.x, even the standard ftp command supports passive
mode. After logging in, enter "passive".
