Hi,
I find a problem that if running multiple FTP command at the same time,
the FTP will get hang
when issuing the get command if the buildin firewall in on (already add
ftp.exe program to the exception list).

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. open multiple DOS shell(cmd.exe) (say 5)
2. on each DOS shell, type ftp -s:abc.txt (where abc is a file that contain
ftp command to get several files) but don't press enter.
3. press enter to run the ftp commands, one by one quickly at same time.
4. the problem will occur that after issuing the get command, the ftp hang!!

Is it that the buildin firewall can't handle too many connection at the same
time?
I check the event log, no strange or useful event generated.

Can anybody tell how can i solve it?
(as one of my program will execute ftp.exe many time at the same time!)
