This doesn't make sense on multiple levels:
  • If you pinged the ftp server, why is it a private RFC1918 address?
  • If this truly is the time needed for packets to come back from the server, your response time is 5x faster than mine.

daemonfowl, it would be good if you showed the next shell's prompt. As it is, it is unclear if this is the complete output or merely cherry-picked output.

Outside of not being able to reconcile why an external ftp server would have an private non-routable address, you are presenting data which indicates that the server may be across the street. Somehow, this seems a bit too fantastic to be true...
