If the server is passive, send a "EPSV" or "PASV" command, connect to it, and start the transfer command. Either way, return the socket for the connection.

I took a closer look at:
You might want to use storbinary() or storlines() instead of
transfercmd(); I think that transfercmd() is meant for something
else. See if:
cow.storlines("STOR test1.txt", open("test1.txt"))
works better for you.
