Default Distributed PASV: PASV with PRE Transfer Command


I'm the author of drftpd, which needs a minor protocol extension to be able to use of PASV.

I've written a comprehensive specification on the command here, i hope you find all your questions answered in the spec

Currently drftpd has very few users, but i'm in the process of setting up a larget cluster. Of course, PASV isn't required but is certainly nice for the FlashFXP users behind NAT/FXPing to another PASV-only site.

The specification is intended for easy implementation and the only thing needed is to send a "PRET <transfer-command>" command before PASV. Any response from the command can safely be ignored. You might want to disable sending PRET if the response code is 202, 500 or 502 though.
