[wix-users] Wix Bundle Exepackage DownloadUrl Ftp not working

I think the protocol choices are http (using wininet) or bits, from looking at DownloadPayload() in src\burn\engine\apply.cpp

are there any limitations to using a ftp download url in the ExePackage?
I tried several ftps and none are working: e.g:

... Error 0x80072ef2: Failed to acquire payload from: 'ftp://ftp.uni-siegen.de/pub/CPAN/modules/by-module/Perl/Perl-Dist-WiX-0.170.readme' to working path: ...

http urls worked fine.

Thanks for any hints,
