My sequence of commands:

 $ settrans -c ftp: /hurd/hostmux /hurd/ftpfs /
 $ ls ftp://myuser:mypasswd@servername.net/
ls: cannot access 'ftp://myuser:mypasswd@servername.net/': Translator died

An important aclaration, when i connect the ftp server through conventional
ftp, i input:

 $ ftp servername.net

The part 'ftp://' is not needed. Can this be important?. I tried this:

 $ ls myuser:mypasswd@servername.net
 $ ls: cannot access 'myuser:mypasswd@servername.net': No such file or directory

I feel a bit frustated, i confess.

Anyway, you always are very kind, Samuel. A million thanks for that.


Jose Luis.
