bash-2.05a$ ftp ftp.netbsd.org.
Connected to ftp.netbsd.org.
220 ftp6.netbsd.org FTP server (NetBSD-ftpd 20020201) ready.

331 Guest login ok, type your name as password.

This is under FreeBSD, what I'm booted into at the moment. It
was kinda dog-slow getting the `331 Guest login' prompt, but it
did come after a dozen or so seconds, so it does seem to be there.
This is over a stf interface. I have had some problems at times
with certain sites (ftp.dk.freebsd.org) with `lynx' where I need
to interrupt the transfer to make it happen, that I haven't needed
to do with other sites, but after waiting some minutes, this is
not the case for ftp.netbsd.org -- just seems slow now.
Hope that's useful...
