Everyone having problems with default type of file transfers should install this update.



Problem description

Opposed to the documentation in the manual page, the ftp command line client negotiates to transfer files as binary by default. This update reverts the default transfer mode to network ASCII, as this is the expected behaviour of an FTP client.
