This has nothing to do with FTPClient.  It has to do with how the server
on the other end lists files.  You can get FTP servers using ls to list
more stuff by passing -a as a pathname or as the first part of your
pathname, .e.g "-a pathname"  This may be what your command line client
is doing by default.  However, it won't work with all FTP servers.
