Description ah313 1998-12-02 19:57:00 UTC
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 20:26:59 UTC
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 23:18:59 UTC
Fixed in the ftp-0.10-4 and later, which will be available from
rawhide.
