No, i was talking about "org.apache.commons.vfs.provider.ftp.FtpFileSystem",
there is the createConnection function. This was a mistake by me.

Yes, i have learnt this now.

I agree.

What i meant wasnt "FTPClient.createConnection()", instead
"FtpFileSystem.createConnection()", sorry FTPClient is the return type of
this function.

Beside the "how to switch to passive connection" problem in VFS there comes,
that there sould not be any proxy support for FTP in the NET package. I
agree, if they wont it since there is no "standard" way for this, anyway,
this doesnt solve my problem.
So maybe VFS should be able to handle such urls

Do you agree.
