Currently, ftp proxy only supports PASV mode. Ftp proxy
supports PORT mode between ftp client and FTP proxy but not between ftp proxy
and origin ftp server. If for any reason, a device/firewall in the path between
bm and origin ftp server is blocking PASV ftp, ftp server is unreachable thru
We should add the capability to the ftp proxy to connect in PORT mode to the
origin ftp server.


Support for Active FTP mode has been implemented in Novell Bordermanager 3.9
