ftp(4)                           File Formats                           ftp(4)



NAME
       ftp - FTP client configuration file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/default/ftp

DESCRIPTION
       Use  the  ftp  file  to configure the behavior of the FTP client. Lines
       that begin with a hash symbol ("# ") are treated as comment  lines  and
       are ignored.

   Behavior Directives
       The ftp file supports the following behavior directives:

       FTP_LS_SENDS_NLST=yes | no

           The ls command of the ftp client sends an NLST to the FTP Server by
           default. Several non-Solaris clients send LIST instead. In order to
           make  the  Solaris  ftp  client  send  LIST  when the ls command is
           issued, set FTP_LS_SENDS_NLST to no. The value of FTP_LS_SENDS_NLST
           is yes by default.



       If  the  user sets a value for FTP_LS_SENDS_NLST in the user's environ-
       ment, this value will override any FTP_LS_SENDS_NLST directive that  is
       specified in /etc/default/ftp.
