i grepped the source for ftp and 21 and came up with nothing telling me
why it was refusing to talk to ftp servers. i installed a dedicated ftp
client, i tried a number of proxy types, obviously not http.

In what program are you seeing the error message, and what is the message?

For FTP, you want to use a SOCKS proxy on port 9050. That is, the request should go directly to Tor rather than to Privoxy (since Privoxy is an http proxy). There may also be DNS leakage depending on which version of SOCKS is used. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me can tell you whether to use SOCKS 4, 4a, 5, or whatever.
