ftpcopy is a simple FTP client written to copy files or directories (recursively) from a FTP server. It was written to mirror FTP sites which support the EPLF directory listing format, but it also supports the traditional listing format (/bin/ls) And may also be used to simply copy files.
ftpls is a FTP client which generates directory listings, either in plain text or HTML.
The tools only support passive mode FTP. There is no plan to support active mode. See http://cr.yp.to/ftp/security.html.
