I have discovered more. I'm now able to send data to a windows FTP
server. I found a great infomation site on FTP at "slacksite.com".
They have a white paper on the differences between Active vs Passive
FTP. And another site is www.dreamhaven.org/ftp-raw.html.
To get the transfer to work I added the following
The first sets the mode to passive at the server. And then I think the
second sets the passive off. I know they are the appear to be opposites
but it works and does not without the statments. Now I'm sure all of my
issues have thing to do with active vs passive FTP. Now I need to
understand how the 'PORT ' command work from within python ftplib.
