2.8.5 is a few years old - checking that, and 2.8.4, both appear to hang on the LIST command issued in the ftp connection. fwiw, w3m also has a problem with this site. opera and some other browsers don't - and looking at the commands issued (CWD, PASV, LIST), looks similar enough to lynx that I agree it "should" work. I don't know the answer offhand, but will look/see if I can determine the problem.

one you find at . A right arrow key does not bring you to a new directory but merely to an information screen for lynx. The version that runs works properly and one can see the subdirectory called AVDEFS when you arrive at .

Do have any indication as to why this doesn't work? I have resorted to using the less elegant program called links and have had successful results with this one. So it might appear to be some problem associated with incompability between and this lynx version.
