I want to access a FTP server which is only available with IPv6.

This is embedded into some local network device. I tried several other FTP clients but for some reason only tnftp works.

After trying and digging around a bit, I found out that the "SOCKS5 proxy support" in the tnftp client actually rules out IPv6 support.

So passing --with-socks=no to configure fixes this.

Would be nice if this could be added.

If you want to provide both (SOCKS5 and IPv6), then maybe build twice and name the IPv6 version "tnftp6"?
This task depends upon

I missed that you seem to explicitly build against "dante" to have SOCKS support.

Other distributions don't seem to do this:

So the package maintainer has to decide. SOCKS or IPv6. If you prefer SOCKS, please close this report. I would create an tnftp6 AUR package in this case.
