Having problems accessing my FTP (linux) server using netscape from a different system.  If FTP'ed to via NT DOS, the 'ls' commands works fine, but the 'dir' does not.  
As a 'regular' user, the FTP works with netscape.

More information is required, explain what you want to do and how you are trying to do it.

yeah, i've seen this many times. a wu-ftpd server that works
perfectly one day suddenly produces nothing on 'ls'.
it's bizarre and i've spent hours digging for it, have asked
in various newsgroups, to no end.

rebooting fixes mine, but it's not much of a solution.
