FTP problem when using dselect (fwd)

Victor still can't post to the list, and I'm really swamped at the moment.
Could someone give him a hand?

Subject: FTP problem when using dselect

Hi Dale,

Sorry to bother you but I still can't post to the list. Would you really
be kind and post this to the list for me?



Using dselect and its ftp worked OK for one download. I tried dselect
ftp again and was unable to log on. Has anyone had this problem and been
able to correct it? I have tried purging and reinstalling "dpkg-ftp" and
"libnet". The messages I received follow:


You must supply an ftp site, use of passive mode, username, password,
path to the debian directory,list of distributions you are interested
in and place to download the binary package files to (relative to

Eg:      ftp site: ftp.debian.org
          passive: y
         username: anonymous
         password: root@og
          ftp dir: /debian
    distributions: stable non-free contrib
     download dir: debian

Enter ftp site [ftp.debian.org]: 

Use passive mode [y]: 

Enter username [anonymous]: 

If you're using anonymous ftp to retrieve files, enter your email
address for use as a password.  Otherwise enter "?" and dpkg-ftp will
prompt you each time.

Enter password [root@og]: 

Enter debian directory [/debian/Debian-1.2-fixed]: 

Note: order here is important.  Package files are scanned in order so
later distributions will override earlier ones.

So put stable before unstable.

Enter space seperated list of distributions to get
[admin base]: 

Enter directory to download binary package files to
(relative to /var/lib/dpkg/methods/ftp/)
