Why not instead make the test contingent on the availability of “ftp.localhost” (ie the test tries to contact an ftp server on the local host)? If the server is not present/unresponsive the test is an expected failure.  If present, the test proceeds.  We can then easily set up test environments when we want to simply by configuring an ftp server on the local host.
