Exact same problem with the following emacs version with -Q:

GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i386-mingw-nt6.0.6002) of 2009-07-29 on SOFT-MJASON

this is a official binary for Windows downloaded from FSF.

Here's OS info:
Windows Vista Home Premium, SP 2.

PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER AMD64 Family 16 Model 2 Stepping 3, AuthenticAMD
PROCESSOR_LEVEL                16
PROCESSOR_REVISION             0203

(not sure what are the ways to get tech spec of OS or hardware on windows...or if these are relevant at all. The above are Windows's env var)

Note: i also have ftp from cygwin installed. I do not know which ftp program emacs is interfacing ...

am having problems using ftp in emacsW32.

Basically, when i try opening

emacs prompt for password, then after i hit Enter, emacs stuck there.
Switching to “*Messages*” shows nothing relevant. Switching to
“*ftp address@hidden shows empty buffer.

any idea how to debug this?

Carbon emacs (emacs22) on my OSX 10.4.* works ok.

GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt6.0.6002) of 2009-05-28 on
LENNART-69DE564 (patched)

The patched version of Emacs+EmacsW32 comes with an ftp programs that
has worked better for me than the one included in Windows. I have got
no bug reports on this, but it might be that program that is at fault
here. Or it might be some changes I have made in that part of Emacs.

Could you please first try starting from

  emacs -Q

and reproduce the problem? That will use the ftp program that comes
with Windows.
