It seems to me it's working fine. It's telling you it doesn't
understand the commands you are sending. :)
To find what commands the server implements, set a log field using
libUrlSetLogField, and then send the ftp "HELP" command. The
commands should appear in the log between lines that start with 214.
As far as I know, neither MV or LS are standard ftp commands.
(Perhaps you need telnet and not ftp.)
Try sending "SITE HELP" to find out what specific "SITE" commands are
implemented. These commands not part of the FTP standard command set,
and are sent by using "SITE" followed by the command name. For
example, "SITE CHMOD 755"
You should probably refer to rfc 0959 or another FTP reference for
information about the commands.
But to move a file, put url <url_1> into url <url_2> should work. (A
bit heavy on the bandwidth perhaps.) And then delete the first file
with: delete url <url_1>
