Thanks for this. It is passive which is killing us - many of our partners (data sources) are turning off active FTP, forcing passive. Hence the issue surfacing. I am working through a support case with RedHat and will be trying newer versions of Perl today.

Hi Tim,

Managed to replicate your issue on a CentOS6 machine with this script https://gist.github.com/tartansandal/1f2582c4fca42719925e. If I change the connection to active rather than passive, It works for me. If I use passive mode, I get an error which throws to a bad part of the code which generates another error, masking the original error.

Hope this helps.
