Trying to ftp a package from ftp.rpmfind.net fails
because the first message it receives is something like:

230-There are currently 187 users logged in, out of
10000 maximum.

I'm not sure what it is expecting, but if it kept going it
would get

230-There are currently 187 users logged in, out of
10000 maximum.
230-Bandwidth served by TUX currently: 2455 KB/sec
230 TUX Guest login ok.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

Which should give it enough info to keep going.

To replicate paste this link into the From ftp or http URL
box and press the install button:
ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/rawhide/1.0/i386/RedHat/RPMS/
perl-5.8.0-51.i386.rpm

    Thanks for the information .. it seems that particular FTP
    server
    implements the protocol in a rather odd way. However, the next
    release of webmin will be able to connect to it.
