MLSD FTP command

Updated May 3, 2017

Overview

This article describes the use of the Machine List Directory (MLSD) FTP command.

Environment

All Serv-U versions

Detail

The MLSD command is a replacement for the LIST command that is meant to standardize the format for directory listings to make them easier for an automated process (an FTP client) to interpret. Like the LIST command, directory information is sent to the client over a previously established data connection. The MLSD command may be accompanied with an optional parameter defining the directory that listings are requested for. Unlike the LIST command, if a filename is provided, an error is returned. For retrieving information on a single file, the MLST command can be used. If no parameter is present, then the user's current directory is assumed.
