Hi Gregory,

Check the libUrlFtpUploadFile command. Use the libUrlFtpCommand command to send the LIST or NLST ftp command to your ftp server and retrieve a list of files together with their details. You can alos use the libUrlSetFTPListCommand. I think that the put URL command is also able to return a list of files if using the ftp protocol. IIRC, using NLST with libUrlSetFTPListCommand will change what is returned by put url.

Best regards,
