   Supported server types are Unix, NT, OS2, VMS, and OS400.  In addition, NT and OS400 servers
   which have been configured to display the directory in Unix style are also supported correctly.

the <code>newer</code> attribute.
   Problems might be due to format of ls -l differing from what is expected by commons-net,
   for instance due to specificities of language used by the ftp server in the directory listing.
   If you encounter such a problem, please send an email including a sample directory listing
   coming from your ftp server (ls -l on the ftp prompt).
