I run proftpd 1.3.0-19 on Debian Etch where I put by rsync Cygwin 
package mirror.

When I run setup.exe:

setup.exe --quiet-mode --only-site --site 
--packages emacs

it stop on:

Downloading status bar not changed from 0%.

By wget --no-proxy I successfully 
get setup.bz2.
Passive ftp mode also work.

With older setup.exe version (I get it with Cygwin 1.7.1):  2.686 all 
work successfully.

New version work successfully when  I put  repo to Windows host with 

My proftpd config (only corresponding part):

<Anonymous /srv/ftp/pub>
   User              ftp
   Group             nogroup
   UserAlias         anonymous ftp

   DirFakeGroup on ftp
