The CS dept at McGill implements ftp through skey (one time passwords with a preagreed shared secret). When I connect, the 331 server response changes each time: ~$ telnet ftp.cs.mcgill.ca 21 Trying 184.108.40.206... Connected to ftp.cs.mcgill.ca. Escape character is '^]'. 220 wase.CS.McGill.CA FTP server (Version 6.00LS) ready. user bbaetz 331 s/key 97 wa79514 (s/key required) I can use the response to generate the one time password. See the URL for more info. Mozilla doesn't display the 331 response (ncftp does, lynx doesn't), and so I can't use this. It would be nice if mozilla displayed this response is the dialog box.
reassigning to email@example.com.

Is the URL a web page that describes this server's security? The page seems to be missing. + testcase: use ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org/ returns a 331 to USER.

When I go to the URL for this bug: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /socsinfo/security/ftp/ on this server. -- I get it. Ignore comment #2. Investigating configuring this on any ftp servers in my test bed.
I have no time to work on mozilla at the moment, so dougt is taking over FTP open ftp bugs -> him
