It was a bug in active mode ftp, accidentally introduced when I fixed
a bug in passive mode on 20020121.  I've fixed it. Update your ftpd
sources so that the version is "NetBSD-ftpd 20020201"

That's because the NetBSD ftp client uses passive mode by default.
Try typing "passive off" and you'll find it will start misbehaving

I've also updated's ftpd.
