ftp task does not work with a Windows 2000 ftp server with "MSDOS" directory listing

           Summary: ftp task does not work with a Windows 2000 ftp server
                    with "MSDOS" directory listing
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: katkere@praja.com


When connecting to a Windows 2000 ftp server which has "MSDOS" style directory 
listing (default), all operations with <ftp> task fail to work. This is 
especially confusing on operations like "get" where you do not expect the task 
to do a directory listing (it does to implement fileset filtering). If the 
server is configured for "UNIX" style directory listing, then everything works 
as expected. So, I don't think it is an issue with my build.xml (which I can 
attach if necessary).

The solution can be either mentioning this in the documentation (that ant ftp 
task requires Unix style listing) or supporting Windows 2000 MSDOS style 
listing by writing a FTPFileListParser that understands this listing format.
