Well, of course this is a possibility. But I'm not looking forward to
explain all the users that they HAVE to use passive mode. I don't know what
you work, but normally you have a few absolute Idiots in front of the PCs.
And, what's more, I'd like to repair the cause, not to do workarounds at the
symptoms :-)

what about using passive mode ftp ? if you can live with the
'restriction' that some(only very few) ftpd don't support PASSIVE mode
ftp yet.

just my (now) 2euro cents
