Just to be clear, you say the banner is sent okay. You mean that you see the connected message, then the 'hello' message, then the 'server ready' message, then the "enter userid" prompt, and it is after all that that things go wrong?

While you say it is not an MTU problem, I just want to check, as weird routing and firewall issues do come up with the first big 'hello' message.

220 Budgie FTP server ready.
User (ftp.budgie.comnone)):

I ask because one set of routers at work had problems with the length of my 'hello' message, the one referenced by the DisplayConnect statement. I had
to remove text until the whole message was somewhat less than 512 bytes (current 422 bytes). Before that I would have problems at or just after the "220-The use of ..." message above.
