Today I've found an interesting case, looking at why the new nessus distfile
was not uploaded to ftp.netbsd.org: it seems that ftp.nessus.org doesn't
accept passive ftp because of a firewall rule:
227 Entering Passive Mode (199,181,107,23,146,207)
200 PORT command successful.
<some delay here>
425 Can't build data connection: No route to host.
Active mode works fine. If someone wants to look at our ftp client and fix
this case ...
