It does not look like being supported by the FtpRetriever object
(implemented in C++). There are several options to move on:
1. Ask the SuSE installation support for help.
2. Ask your firewall adminstrator why there is this strange limit while
most clients are changing to Passive FTP to help out firewall
3. Ask your administrator to install a FTP proxy converting the session.
4. Try to implement the active FTP connection yourself. The source of
YaST is available from the installation media. (./suse/zq1/yast.spm)
