Indeed. Sorry it took me a little longer to research the issue.

Ah. This is a mess. The interaction with lukemftp looks like this:
500 Unknown command.
227 Entering Passive Mode (129,128,5,190,169,64)
I dare say that "Unknown command" confuses not just EFS, but also
human users: since lukemftp issues a command secretly, it should also
eat the response. I have no idea how to work around this, since 500
may be a genuine error in a circumstance like this. (The
Heimdal ftp client attempts extended passive, too, but discards the
500 response, and thus works fine with EFS.)
Hi Luke, maybe this can be fixed in lukemftp?
Cheers =8-} Mike
