I have two questions regarding the 'ftpd'.

1. nessus-1.0.10 reports that 'ftpd' can be killed after
   ~3000 login tries; during the test 'inetd' reports
   "ftp/tcp server falling (looping), service terminated"
   Is it 'ftpd''s security issue?

2. The latest 'ftpd' (from the -current branch) behaves
   strangely with some clients, including Windows2000
   'ftp' command and Amiga Genesis 'ftp' and 'ncftp':
   only one command can be issued, and after that it
   Is this on purpose?

   Note that it works with NetBSD 'ftp' client and,
   for example, Fetch 4.0.1 on Macintosh.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. :)

	kind regards
