When I view the contents of a directory, I'll use 'ls -l'.  However, the results are case sensitive.  For example, if I have a file called MyFile.txt:

ls -l /mnt/mountpoint/myfile* --> no results
ls -l /mnt/mountpoint/MyFile* --> shows the file

Sometimes I do not know if a file has upper case letters or not.  Is there a way to list the contents of a folder regardless of upper and lower case names?

Thanks
