Hmm, just tried :
and it didn't work. Amongst the other output is :
230 Guest login ok, access restrictions apply.
200 Type set to I.
Passive mode: on; fallback to active mode: off.
Interactive mode off.
(because I have a .netrc entry for ftp.netbsd.org), and finally :
550 pub: No such file or directory.
So, should the URL always be of the form :
(which works), or should ftp ignore ~/.netrc for URL fetches?
PS. Sources from approx Feb 04, but I don't see any significant change since.
My other computer also runs NetBSD
