How to change default port in Net/FTP

When I use FTP.open(host) or FTP.new(host) it always assume that I want
to use port 21 by default. Is there a way to modify this? Like, does it
exist a variable in the FTP class that I can modify in real time?

(I don’t want to use the “connect” function in the library)

Net::FTP uses the port defined in the FTP_PORT constant. Changing
that should allow you to connect to a different port.

Thank you for the reference. But since It is a constant I do not want to
change it (matter of principle, really) I’ll try to add a specific
function to the library that does what I need

The Ruby FTP library should really have an optional setter for
specifying a non-standard port to use.

??? Have you even read the docs?

Search for “port”… :-/
