How to change default port in Net/FTP

When I use FTP.open(host) or FTP.new(host) it always assume that I want
to use port 21 by default. Is there a way to modify this? Like, does it
exist a variable in the FTP class that I can modify in real time?

(I don't want to use the "connect" function in the library)

Net::FTP uses the port defined in the FTP_PORT constant. Changing that should allow you to connect to a different port.

Search for "port"... :-/
