For anyone else who encounters this and may find my original message,
my problem was that TIdFTP.DataPortProtection was set to ftpdpsClear
instead of ftpdpsProtection.  This results in the FTP command "PROT C"
instead of "PROT P".  The 'Security mechanism not support' was the
response from the FTP server to the "PROT C" command.
