I am using different testing machines. This one runs Ubuntu Maverick and does
have a direct internet connection and is not using a proxy. I have compiled
current Mono master yesterday evening. Anonymous ftp is working now! However,
accessing a password protected ftp site is not fully working. I created a
console application using the following code:

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.IO;

namespace WebClient.Test
    class MainClass
        public static void Main (string[] args)
            System.Net.WebClient client=new System.Net.WebClient();
NetworkCredential("user","test");//explicitly setting credentials works
credentials via url fails!!!
            System.Text.ASCIIEncoding enc=new System.Text.ASCIIEncoding();
            byte[] buf=new byte[256];

            string strContent=enc.GetString(buf);
            Console.WriteLine ("Hello World!");

I used the Quick'n'Easy Ftp Server (Freeware) under WinXP to set up a password
protected site on another machine.

Specifiying credentials via the url is not working. The relevant code is in
FtpWebRequest.Authenticate() which tries to access the site using anonymous
credentials in this case. It simply ignores the credentials which are supplied
via the url. This should be fixed.
