On hosts with multiple network interfaces the ServerSocket for data reception has to be bound to the same interface as the control session uses.
Any other behavior leeds into trouble with securely configured ftp servers, statefull firewalls in the net or local firewalls.

    The uploaded classes work well on a server blade with several interfaces to the common and the storage network.
    uploaded FTPClient also handles parsing issues with windows ftp services a bit more flexible.
    Attention: uploaded FTPClient contains an import for commons-logging.
