The default mode of Net::FTP is now passive, but do you really need the active mode?

Do you know any FTP client implementation which provides similar options?
Python's ftplib doesn't seem to have such options.

Your patch doesn't seem to change Net::FTP#makeport.  Does it work?

Feature #13382: [PATCH] Options for FTP PORT command

# Abstract

Add options to Net::FTP to set data listening host and port.

# Background

Net::FTP sends local address and default port to remote FTP server.
In FTP active mode, remote server will connect to client to establish data connection, but it will fail if there is NAT in network.
(NAT doesn't rewrite address and port in PORT command because they are not in packet header but payload)
So, it's necessary to set host and port for FTP PORT command explicitly.

# Real use cases

Active FTP is not working in AWS EC2.
