New submission from Georg Brandl:

ftp.python.org doesn't seem to listen on port 21 either... anyone know a public
FTP server we can use as example?

Quick note, ftplib gives example host ftp.cwi.nl

In its documentation which is a url which is no longer active… when you try the
dummy example, ftplib doesn’t really output a clear error so it might be worth
updating the host, (though most programmers should assume this quickly),

Python 2.7 > documentation for ftplib which introduced the feature FTP_TLS gives
the examplehost ftp.python.org <ftp://ftp.python.org> which is possibly the
ideal candidate for the change.

Not really a bug, thought id save you the trouble by reporting just incase, it
was something worth changing.
