    Hi
    I am running lufs on "Linux 2.6.10-5-686 i686 GNU/Linux"
    I am trying to access my home directory at my workplace server by mounting it via ftpfs.

    Lufs is properly installed and I confirmed it by trying localfs and mounting GNU's public ftp mirrors.

    This is what happens, (I have changed the password and server name from the real values, but I am positive that I am using the correct values):

    lufsmount ftpfs://myusername@myservername ~/mnt/lufs -o ftpactive -c 1 -p -v
    password:
    executing command: lufsd none /home/rajat/mnt/lufs -o fs=ftpfs,host=myservername,username=myusername,password=mypasswd,channels=1,ftpactive
    could not mount filesystem!

    I am able to mount public FTP sites but not my workplace  directories.

    The solaris server I am connecting to is: SunOS servername 5.8 Generic_108528-15 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise

    Help will be sincerely appreciated :-)
