Ooops, you're right, they should be checking for both 250 and 226.
(I guess I've never used it on a server that returns 250 before)

The official Internet Standard for FTP is RFC 959.  It replaced RFC 765 in
Oct of 1985.   RFC 765 replaced RFC 542 in June of 1980.

The RFC 542 standard that you're using as a reference has been obsolete
for over 22 years!   That's what you're missing. :)

According to RFC 959, either 226 or 250 can be given in the reply...
However, this is the first time I've run across a server that uses 250!
I'll fix the code.
