Looks like the FTP server software is old, or having problems with
passive mode (bad firewall near server?).  If it works with IPv6 but not
IPv4, then my money is on "firewall".

This works for me:
  curl --disable-eprt -JLO ftp://time.nist.gov/pub/leap-seconds.3629404800

where the --disable-eprt was necessary.  With ftp(1) an "ls" hangs on
"229 Entering Extended Passive Mode (|||18589|)", which was the clue to
try disabling that.
