Thank you very much. This was indeed the problem. As many times as
I had looked at the FTP accounts that were working and those that
would not, I overlooked that passive box every time. I do not know
how or what made the change as this past month was the first time
that these accounts did not work as they always had.
My firewall settings were not supposed to have changed during the
last upgrade and everything looks the same to my poor tired old eyes
and I am sure that I had not made changes to my WS_FTP configuration.
