lynx hangs when following ftp links

Description of Problem:
lynx hangs on following ftp links.
I am almost sure that this is because of our firewall: I need to use
passive ftp for ftp to work. But I thought lynx was supposed to do
passive ftp? It doesn't seem to do so here.
Lynx does passive ftp if you tell it to (add FTP_PASSIVE:TRUE to /etc/lynx.cfg).
My apologies: you're quite right.
