When connecting to a freeBSD server running the last pure-ftpd, any try to download files via mget command ends in a "Can't check for file existence"
ftp> mget *.c
Can't check for file existence
on the server side the only thing that is logged to /var/log/messages is:
Oct 21 18:59:52 mordaglio pure-ftpd: (?@?) [ERROR] Unable to find the 'ftp' account
Adding the user (needed for anonymous ftps, I suppose) doesn't change anything.
The only workaround I found is downgrading to a previous version.
