lynx and speakup ftp problem may also be solved

Since the ftp site was mentioned, I tried that on both computers and had 
absolutely no problem accessing
and all its directories; I even downloaded.
So here's my suggestion: anybody who is having trouble with this 
site might try changing FTP-Passive to TRUE in your lynx.cfg. Of course, I 
was having trouble with ftp in lynx in general, but on my laptop, where I 
had no other ftp problems, I also could access speakup without changing 
PASSIVE to TRUE. Why this would be necessary for one computer on a network 
and not another I can't say, but it might make the speakup site work for 
some people.
Remember to type the url just as typed--don't put an ftp. after the ftp:// 
or it won't work.
Hth somebody.
