Unhappy lftp problem


I have three websites, I can connect successfully to two of them using lftp. I can connect to the third website but I can't ls or issue any FTP command, it goes forever after I press enter and no response is returned.
I use Ubuntu Dapper 64-bit edition

Huh. I had this problem once on one particular cafe network. I assumed their firewall was blocking the TLS authentication, because I could get through to anonymous ftp sites fine. I circumvented it by ssh tunneling home and running lftp from there, so I don't know for sure what caused it. But try connecting with plain old ftp -vd and see if that's any more enlightening.
