    The .NET Framework does a poor job of parsing FTP FastSnap URLs. For instance, ftp://ausername:apassword@IP:port/path. This is especially evident when the IP is given in non-dotted decimal representation. The following function attempts to parse a FastSnap using the inbuilt Framework. If that fails, it tries a custom procedure that is sometimes able to catch some of the failed entries. It's by no means perfect, but it can give some additional flexibility.
