See the wiki page for examples of when having use-feat does not work.

With my provider's server, I get:

lftp mysite
---- Resolving host address...
---- 1 address found:

I must use use-feat OFF for it to work.

However, I found this message:

This is an RFC-2389 violation - wrong FEAT reply format. I'll add a
work-around for it.

For now, use:

set use-feat/this.server.com off

This message is from 2004. Today, I still have to turn off use-feat. I wonder is the work-around mentioned above was ever committed. I am not sure if the reply to FEAT on my server is correct or not.
