I cannot access any files in this directory.
no it was your ftp server, it was responding with "550 load average is
11, anonymous users are not allowed to download with this much load."
or somesuch, it was doing so in a broken way though so most clients
didn't properly identify the failure. in fact its not even possible
to see the error message unless you use the plain jane bsd ftp
command, all the others (wget, lftp etc) helpfully hid the message and
it seems to be behaving itself now.
Another info for ftp://oss.sgi.com...
There are certain versions of Firewall-1 from Checkpoint, namely 4.1
which have a bug in ftp control connections to certain ftp Servers.
oss.sgi.com is one of those (one of two I discovered) which cannot
be reached from behind this firewall!
