Dave - you are correct... this is a documentation defect. Now, I need to be
further enlightened on the proper use of the command. I have setup a
callback field. When I issue a LIST command, all that I get back is the
response "150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for /bin/ls.
", but not the
actual list. Is this going into another variable somewhere?
