To make sure that the ftp server is working correctly for you, try running it
stand-alone and use your ftp client to issue the 'LIST' ('dir' in a solaris
ftp client makes it). Oh, right, enable passive mode first (might be -p, my
crappy old solaris version has no such option):

% perl &
% ftp -p localhost 8921

You can enter anything for name and password, there's no check on what you

If it does work with the ordinary ftp client, the output from 'curl -v
ftp://localhost:8921/' would be very interesting to see.
