For whatever it may be worth, I get exactly the same results, i.e.:

    URL to open:
    Looking up
    Making FTP connection to
    Can't access `'
    Alert!: Unable to access document.

under both 2.7.1 (on MIT's machines) and 2.8.4rel.1 (on Panix).

On both systems, the Unix command "ftp" (without the
quotes, of course) successfully takes me to's ftp login.
