#10240: FTP doesn't honor passive mode

    Priority:  normal    |  Milestone:
   Component:  ftp       |    Version:  6.4.1

 I use an ftp site which apparently requires passive mode.  I never even
 knew this because it is apparently the mac default.
 So recently (around feb 15 or so?) I log in to upload a file and it just
 starts throwing 500 errors anytime I try to do anything.

 cd /players/amish

 550  /players/amish: Permission denied. Please contact your web hosting
 service provider for assistance.

 Eventually I downloaded command line ftp, opened a connection, told it to
 use PASS mode and did a "cd amish" and it worked fine.
 So something in a recent high sierra patch appears to be messing around
 with how cyberduck interacts with the mac os settings.

 When I was watching the logs I did see some messages about "sandbox"
 blocking connections to some port, but I can't reproduce that so I am not
 sure if it is related.
