Hey everyone.

Had a quick question regarding PF and FTP for clients behind PF...

I setup all the required steps as suggested in the PF FAQ...

However, im having a hard time connecting when using perl -MCPAN

Here is what happens when I try and connect:

[code:1:732ae6e531]--18:03:51-- ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/MIRRORED.BY
(try:11) => `-'
Connecting to ftp.perl.org[]:21... connected.
Logging in as anonymous ... Logged in!
==> SYST ... done. ==> PWD ... done.
==> TYPE I ... done. ==> CWD /pub/CPAN ... done.
==> PORT ... done. ==> RETR MIRRORED.BY ...
Error in server response, closing control connection.

Doesnt matter what I try and do. It does not work.
Everything else for FTP works fine.

So im wondering if the problem is directly due to perl MCPAN?

Anyone have any ideas?
