eg. by comparing with another client?

Not shure what you mean.

I suppose my next steps are to study the 
source modules and the relevant RFCs, turn 
on whatever debugging output I can find and 
try to understand the failure.  Anyone know
the current numbers for FTP RFCs?

cg> Can you do some other inet-command after 'freeing yourself from
the FTP loop'.

Yes.  FTP to Mac NetPresenz on my LAN and other 
network services are OK.  Suggests that the problem 
is in the FTP protocol.

cg> the developer of inet utilities tests it against his available
   facilities ...
Pity that the RFCs are not simpler and more 
clear.  Gutknecht, p. 107, _The School 
of Niklaus Wirth_, "...a few lines of formal 
text, in combination with expressive names, 
are worth more than a thousand pages of verbose 
and lengthy explanations." 

Thanks for the reply,        Peter E.
