Description ah313 1998-12-02 14:57:00 EST
When trying to connect to a FTP site that runs on a port
greater than 32767, the ftp client reports it's a bad
port.  This is not true because a port can be a 16 bit
integer, but for some reason the FTP client thinks it
is 15 bit!!!
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1998-12-04 15:26:59 EST
The port entered from the command line of the ftp client
is inconsistently copied from int to short to u_short ...
Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1998-12-15 18:18:59 EST
Fixed in the ftp-0.10-4 and later, which will be available from
