Issue #7497 has been updated by rubyhack (first last).


thank you zzak.
sorry again , any one can close this issue, after downloading 1.8.6 I realized that the attr_accessor :passive
is in the FTP class. so this is a good lesson as a start up to verify that it is undead a bug before reporting it.
I have corrected my application .

Bug #7497: net/ftp.rb can't list ftp sites behind a firewall

net/ftp.rb can't list ftp sites behind a firewall ,
to solve this issue ftp passive mode must be used , the support is in the code but needs means to activate it !
so add to the FTP class attributes to change and access passive state :
attr_reader :passive
attr_writer :passive

and a program can use:
    ftp.passive = true
to use passive mode
