Date: 2007nov15 Q. Ftp opens another socket every time it lists a directory's contents. Is there a way my program can avoid this overhead? A. The LIST and NLST server commands are usually done when a client program does ls or dir. They open a new socket and require either the POST or PASV commands before hand. But the STAT command sends the same info and does not open a new socket and associated complications. To list the current directory do:STAT .To list another directory do:STAT <dir>You can also use:MDTM <file> SIZE <file>To get a file's modify date/time and size via the same connection.
