Try setting the ftp to PASSIVE mode after connecting. You can set it during the connection initiation string if you would like by using it as an %option (read the Net::FTP documentation for specifics).


Here is a reasonable explanation of the difference between Active and Passive ftp and what is happening that might require a PASV connection.
