ftp-passive-transfers: preference variable
Default value: 1
This variable controls how Epsilon's FTP client transfers files.
Epsilon knows three methods, called "passive", "active", and
"default port". Firewalls or ancient FTP server software can cause
one or more of the methods to fail. Set this variable to zero to use
only active transfers. Set it to two to make Epsilon try active
transfers first, then passive. Set it to three to make Epsilon use
the "default port" method. The default of one makes Epsilon try
passive, then active.
