Too late :-)

I've installed ftp-ssl on my machine, and played with it and
ange-ftp. Same problem accessing "/". But
finally, I've got it running:

1. ftp-ssl writes an additional line ange-ftp is not aware of:

SSL not available

I've submitted a patch to the Emacs repo adding this message in
ange-ftp.el. I let ange-ftp just skip this line.

2. ftp-ssl has an additional feature to support readline/editline. This
comes in the way of ange-ftp batch processing. You must suppress it.

There is `ange-ftp-ftp-program-args', which contains already useful
arguments. I've added "-e". And voilĂ , with the resulting setting
'("-e" "-i" "-n" "-g" "-v") I have been able to access
