Listing directories on the remote host

You can list the contents of a directory on the remote host. The command ls prints a short version; the command dir a longer version. You will need to give the path to the directory if it is not in your home directory on the remote host. For example:

   ftp> ls
   200 PORT command successful.
   150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.
   public
   reports
   226 Transfer complete.

   ftp>
   ftp> dir reports/quarterly
   200 PORT command successful.
   150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for /bin/ls
