Passive/Active mode in Konqueror & .netrc

Hi Everyone,

I asked this same question in the Linux General, sorry for the re-post but I didn't see this more appropriate place for my question until now.

I hope someone has figured out how to get around the passive/active mode problem with konqueror by now.

Someone said in a forum they added some commands to a .netrc file but I can't get konqueror to read them.

Konqueror says this in their faq:

Starting with version 2.2 beta1 konuqeror does indeed support automatic logins as specified in the ".netrc" file. However, there is no graphical front end to enable this feature ; so you have to do it manually using the following procedure:

1. Create $KDEHOME/share/config/kio_ftprc if it does not already exist.
Note that $KDEHOME referes to your personal kde config directory (usually ~/.kde).
2. Add the following entry to kio_ftprc: "EnableAutoLogin=true"
3. Issue the following command to update running io-slaves:
dcop konqueror KIO::Scheduler reparseConfiguration() ""

Please note that the support for the "macro" keyword is very limited in the current implementation. In fact, we only honor the "cd" command. Furthermore, eventhough this nominal "macro" support was left ON by default for the 2.2 beta1 release, you will have to be manually enable it in subsequent releases by adding a "EnableAutoLoginMacro=" entry following the same procedure outlined above.

I followed the instructions and it didn't work, I found a file called konquerorrc and added the command to that file too. But nothing takes. I have my .netrc file working with the ftp shell program (lukeftp) just fine.

It even kicked lukeftp out of passive mode with the macdef command

If konqueror would just work off of the .netrc file it should work.

Any ideas out there?

If .netrc doesn't work, then isn't there another way to get konqueror to not use passive mode. I can't connect to my online server running proftpd.

My firewall is OFF, and my proftpd server is accepting passive mode connections. What the heck??
