-- Can you try with regular ftp client software (Fetch, etc.)? Do you get the same problem?

-- Is any error returned in "the result"? For example:

   get url "ftp://username:password@serverAddress/Users/me/Documents/pathToFile”
   if the result is not empty then answer the result

-- Try using libUrlSetLogField to record the activity. It may give a hint. 

    (assuming you have a field named "log")
    libUrlSetLogField the long id of field "log"
    get url "ftp://username:password@serverAddress/Users/me/Documents/pathToFile”
