You can't use the ftpclient from the client side in a jsp without having 
a signed java applet or an application.  Just to clarify, because from 
the posting it doesn't sound like that is clear.  The FileUpload class 
and everything else runs on the backend in the jsp container, so the ftp 
client will not be able to do the same thing as file upload simply 
because of the logistics and where the components need to run.  Do you 
have an applet or an application you are running ftp client in?
