Am I the only one having problems to access this site?
I get "421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection"
most of the time.

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.

Many people have problems because their sysadmin did set up a broken
firewall. Doing FTP correctly is not trivial.....

Agreed, although the iptables in Linux 2.4 does a quite good job. However, for people who are using real ftp instead of ftp from some browser, if you set the passive (command PASS) mode so you use the same socket for data and commands, many firewalls will behave better.

Haven't had a problem on Joerg's site, so I can't say I've tried that, I just click his link like everyone else ;-)
