Fails when FTPing to IPv6 hosts

description

When connecting to an IPv6 site to rehost via FTP, I get the following error:
Transfer to the FTP server failed:
PASV request for LIST command rejected.

Response message from server:
425 You cannot use PASV on IPv6 connections. Use EPSV instead.
Perhaps consider detecting if IPv4 or IPv6 is being used, and choose the proper FTP command to send.

Interesting. Might you have access to an IPv6 FTP server that I can test with?

Of course. I will message you shortly with credentials.
