gaumer@debiantosh:(~)$ dpkg -l ftp
ii  ftp                                    0.17-12                                The FTP client.

gaumer@debiantosh:(~)$ ls -l /etc/alternatives/ftp
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 19 May 19 16:37 /etc/alternatives/ftp -> /usr/bin/netkit-ftp

gaumer@debiantosh:(~)$ dpkg -L ftp

So you see he could be using one of many choices (not to mention OS's)
which is why he needs to make sure he is operating in passive mode. This
is most likely his problem.
