We would appreciate if you use the FTP Client to support functions such as GetInfo in SFTP.

FtpItem item = ftp.GetInfo (filename);

I did manually parsing and getting information using "MLST ".
Expose MLST or MLSD related parsing functions.

Thank you.

The GetInfo method is not directly supported in FTP, because "MLST" is not supported by all servers. In that case, we apply a workaround, but it doesn't work for all servers as well.

However, you can issue the GetInfo method in FTP like this:

var iftp = (IFtp)ftp;
var item = iftp.GetInfo("readme.txt", true);
Console.WriteLine("{0} [{1} B] ({2})", item.Name, item.Length, item.LastWriteTime);

iftp.getinfo works fine.
Thank you.
