STAT FTP command

Updated May 4, 2017


This article provides information on Status (STAT) FTP command. 

The STAT command can be issued to retrieve status information about the client's connection to the server or the general status of the server. The STAT command can be used with several optional parameters.


All Serv-U versions


If the STAT command is issued during a file transfer, information about the current file transfer is sent to the client. If a path name is provided with the command, it is analogous to the LIST command except for the file information for the specified pathname is sent over the command connection instead of a data connection. A partial pathname can be provided instead, in which case the server will respond with a list of file names or attributes associated with that specification. If no parameter is provided and a file transfer is not in progress, the server will respond with general status information about the FTP server and the current connection.
