Value Whether to use EPRT command: 1 for EPRT, 0 for no EPRT. 1

Whether to use EPRT command.
If the value is 1, it tells curl to use the EPRT (and LPRT) command when doing active FTP downloads (which is enabled by CURL.SetOptionFTPPort). Using EPRT means that it will first attempt to use EPRT and then LPRT before using PORT, but if you pass zero to this option, it will not try using EPRT or LPRT, only plain PORT.

If the server is an IPv6 host, this option will have no effect.
