 Some information that might help...

 Some Mac OS servers (like Rumpus), use a slightly different directory
 listing format than tradition Unix servers, to account for Mac specific
 file formats.  In particular, the data fork size, resource fork size, and
 total file size may be included in the listing.  Here is an example of a
 very short listing that includes a folder and a file:

 drwxrwxrwx               folder        0 Oct 11 14:53 Uploads[[BR]]
 -rw-r--r--        0      589878   589878 Oct 15 13:03 WebDAV SS.bmp

 If the directory list parser can't be made to handle these listings in
 general it is usually acceptable to customize the parser based on the
 system type.  The traditional Mac OS "SYST" response is:

 215 MACOS Peter's Server

 ("Peter" refers to Peter Lewis, author of the first popular FTP server on
 classic Mac systems.)

 Please note that determining that the server type is a Mac should probably
 be done by checking to see if the system type contains the keyword
 "MACOS", rather than exactly matching "MACOS Peter's Server", since other
 well-behaved server apps may wish to report a more accurate server name
 (such as "MacOS Rumpus").

 I hope this helps!
