I don't suppose there is a quick fix that will allow me
to connect to a FTP Server running on TCP port 2121
rather than 21? This is quite an annoying problem,
since my ISP filters port 21 & 80.

    Yes you can.
    mount -t lufs none /mnt/sunet2 -n -o
    nosuid,fs=ftpfs,host=ftp2.sunet.se,username=ppz,password=secret,port=2121

    That wold connect you to ftp.sunet.se on port 2121.

    \\ppz

    Yup, there is a port option for the ftpfs filesystem. Just that I
    forgot about it, so it's not documented nor supported by
    lufsmount. Will be fixed in the next release.

    Until then, use the syntax below...

    Cheers
