wget seems to have problem with ftp servers


I have solaris 10.
wget works fine when I use it for http but doesn´t seem to work when the url leads to a ftp server. It says it doesn´ t get any answer:
Quote:
--11:22:35-- ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/screen/screen-3.9.4.tar.gz
(try: 3) => `screen-3.9.4.tar.gz'
Connecting to ftp.gnu.org[199.232.41.7]:21... connected.
Logging in as anonymous ... Logged in!
==> SYST ... done. ==> PWD ... done.
==> TYPE I ... done. ==> CWD /pub/gnu/screen ... done.
==> PORT ... done. ==> RETR screen-3.9.4.tar.gz ...
Error in server response, closing control connection.
Retrying.
It does this for all ftp servers I tried. when I try the url with wget from linux, it works fine.
Any clue?

Hi,

Just a thought: Try using the --passive-ftp option.

Hope this helps.
