I maintaining some web stuff on an FTP server that is giving me some

If I try to do a dired on this sort of filename:


I get this error

    byte-code: FTP Error: USER request failed: 500 This security scheme is not 

and I am landed in the *ftp buffer which will be showing the following:

    ftp> open x.x.x
    Connected to x.x.x.

    230-OK. Current restricted directory is /
    230 182926 Kbytes used (3%) - authorized: 4889600 Kb

The connection is up, so if I delete the dired buffer and tries doing th
dired again, I am in and can continue doing my stuff.

I am a little unsure what the error 500 is and what happens that
triggers it.

Is this actually an ange-ftp issue (the info manual seems to say that
ftp is forwarded to ange-ftp) and does anybody happens to know how to
avoid the problem?
