Is there a syntax for passthrough ftp?  That is, in our firewalled
network, we can use ftp via passthrough on the firewall machine 
by specifying a port number and username of the syntax 
"anonymous@remote.ftp.site"  Sequence is something like this:

ftp -n firewall:portnumber

ftp-prompt-fro-firewall>  user anonymous@remote.ftp.site

The outgoing connection is then set up and functions like a normal
ftp session.  Can such a connection be set up using an URL, and
what it its syntax?
