So is your server speaking the same kind of "ftps" that curl speaks?

FTPS is not a standard, and curl is only doing a pretty simple version of it
that basicly just uses SSL for the control connection and keep the data
connection unencrypted.

Perhaps your server tries to support a more involved version?

The curl TODO mentions how we want the FTPS support in curl improved.
