Any time I attempt to reach it through a web browser, using squid as
a proxy, I can't do it.  Apparently it doesn't like squid's anonymous
logins, or default password, or something.  But then it works fine if
I use a "normal" FTP client.  In fact, it's working right now.

Also, if you don't have a PTR record for your visible IP address, many
FTP servers will reject you.  I don't know whether ftp.berlios.de is one
of these, but on several occasions in the past, I've had better results
by ssh'ing from work to my DSL box at home, obtaining files on the
DSL box, and then sending them back to myself at work.  (The NAT setup
at work doesn't have a valid PTR record for its external IP address!)

I personally look forward to the death of FTP.  I hate that protocol
with a passion.  But that's a rant for a different mailing list.... :)
