Anybody tell me about net/ftp protocol?

Dear Friends,
I am having the source code like this.
require ‘net/ftp’

ftp = Net::FTP::new(“ftp.ruby-lang.org”)
ftp.login(“anonymous”, “[email protected]”)
ftp.chdir("/pub/ruby")
tgz = ftp.list(“ruby-*.tar.gz”).sort.last
print "the latest version is ", tgz, “\n”
ftp.getbinaryfile(tgz, tgz)
ftp.close

while running this code It is not working properly.
as long as it is simply running,But I am not getting any result.
After pressing ctrl+c I got the error like this.
Please anybody clarify my doubts.
The error is:

/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:211:in readline': Interrupt from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:211:ingetline’

Your code works for me, which suggests there was either a problem
with the ftp server when you tried it or there’s something wrong with
your connection/firewall. Unrelated to your problem above, you’ll
have to make a small change in your dir listing code to get it to
properly work:

require ‘net/ftp’

ftp = Net::FTP::new(“ftp.ruby-lang.org”)
ftp.login(“anonymous”, “[email protected]”)
ftp.chdir("/pub/ruby")
tgz = ftp.list(“ruby-*.tar.gz”).map{|l| l.split[8]}.sort.last
print "the latest version is ", tgz, “\n”
ftp.getbinaryfile(tgz, tgz)
ftp.close

Probably the OP needs to put the connection in passive mode.
