FTP rename command help

I have to ftp and rename the file with #finished# extension after successfully transfer. In some environments the command
Code:
rename ABCD.dat ABCD.#finished#

is working fine, but some environments its not working, I have to use escape character something like :
Code:
rename ABCD.dat ABCD.\#finished\#

Why is it behaving differently? Both servers are running on Linux same version and korn shell.

Thank you in advance for your help.

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 environment, this value will override any FTP_LS_SENDS_NLST directive that is specified in /etc/default/ftp. ATTRIBUTES
