Description of problem:
In 7.2, it appears that the default behaoir for passive mode has been
changed - Passive mode is set by default.
When initiating ftp from a 7.2 system thru a port on a gateway, (runing older
versions of RH linux), the user logs in ok, but then
can not do much on the system - ls, mget, mput..
because the passive mode established a port that's not used on the proxy/gateway.
Name (proxy_gateway_name.domain): firstname.lastname@example.org
331 Password required for user.
230 User user logged in.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
227 Entering Passive Mode (192,58,206,40,215,229)
ftp: connect: No route to host
Suggest: either change ftp default behavoir to be passive off (as it was in
previous versions) - or supply a release note to warn user of the changed
default in 7.2.
