ftp is not a shell, so you can't expect all the UNIX commands to work. In fact "ftp" is a client program (and a very basic one, at that). Inside "ftp" you can only use "ls" to list a single directory. Many ftp-servers therefore have the output of "ls -lR" (a recursive drectory listing) in a file near the top of their tree. Download this file and search in it for what you are interested in.

I hope this helps.
