I have a workstation that can use the network with no problems, connect to the internet with no problems, but is having an issue using a command prompt or a program called reflection with ftp. You can connect ok, but unable to cd, ls, copy, etc. You can however use Windows explorer just fine for FTP. What's the deal?
