Package: boot-floppies
Version: 3.0.17; reported 2001-12-12
Severity: important

If I'm reading net-fetch.c correctly, its call to 'wget' doesn't use passive
ftp.  This will fail for people behind many firewalls.

Shouldn't it use --passive-ftp by default?  AFAIK, turning it on should
(virtually) never cause a problem, and will be a lot better on balance.

Anyhow, it's irrelevant.  Since busybox wget doens't support this
argument, the user's request to use this argument is hereby denied.
:)

Bug submitter, if busybox wget is not using ftp in the right way,
please file a bug on busybox, not on the boot-floppies.  Thanks.
