LIST FTP command

Updated May 3, 2017

Overview

This article describes the use of the List (LIST) FTP command.

Environment

All Serv-U versions

Detail

The LIST command is issued to transfer information about files on the server through a previously established data connection. When no argument is provided with the LIST command, the server will send information on the files in the current working directory. If the argument specifies a directory or other group of files, the server should transfer a list of files in the specified directory. If the argument specifies a file, then the server should send current information about the file.

Advanced options

Serv-U supports the option to return full paths in the LIST command in the command response. Enabling this advanced option allows Serv-U to return the full path when LIST is issued for a specific file. The format is:
-rw-rw-rw- 1 user group 0 Feb 9 09:38 /subdirectory/file.txt 
Instead of: 
-rw-rw-rw- 1 user group 0 Feb 9 09:38 file.txt
