       ftp - FTP client configuration file


       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.

       See attributes(5)  for descriptions of the following attributes:
