Thanks to all and Lennart.

Lennart helped me to have solved the problem.

It turns out, that the ftp program bundled with Windows at
does not work with emacs. (at least in my case)

The one bundled with emacsW32 at
"C:/Program Files (x86)/Emacs/EmacsW32/gnuwin32/bin/"
made the difference.


overall, maybe this is still a bug for GNU emacs 23 on Windows, since out of the box it doesn't work.

You can use executable-find to find out which ftp probram is in
exec-path. But these are of course overriden by explicit path given in
