I've seen you are sending "user@ftpfs.sourceforge.net"
as PASS in anonymous ftp.

You should use "anonymous@" as newer ftp clients do.

- Some stupid servers try to check that what goes after
@ exists and delay the login and could deny login if
the hostname is not a DNS valid one.
- Sending anything that's not anonymous@ as password is
not anonymous by definition
- Spyware is not a good idea, most users don't like it.
