Safari (both with "Passive mode" check or unchecked in the proxy settings)
Connection failed
There was an error connecting to the server "xxx.yyy.zzz". Check the server name or IP address, and then try again.

Firefox, Fetch, etc.
The FTP access is okay and immediate.

Is this a bug in Safari or a setting problem ?

    I have the same problem. If I try to connect to our company's FTP server with Safari from the internet, it just gets stuck waiting for server to respond. However, if I am on the corporate network, it connects right away. However, if I use FTP programs like Cyberduck from the internet, it connects right away. So it must be something about Safari. By the way, this also happens with Safari on iPad as well. Can someone shed some light on this? Maybe there is a setting you can do on FTP server side?
