FTP client can't connect on ports numbers > 32767, reports error
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
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!!!
The port entered from the command line of the ftp client
is inconsistently copied from int to short to u_short ...
Fixed in the ftp-0.10-4 and later, which will be available from
