220 (vsFTPd 1.1.3)
Name (localhost:root): anonymous
331 Please specify the password.

230 Login successful. Have fun.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp> ls
227 Entering Passive Mode (127,0,0,1,59,164)
150 Here comes the directory listing.
drwxr-xr-x 2 0 0 4096 Feb 28 2003 pub
