    I have been playing around but can't seem to find the correct appelscript command to write a remote directory listing to a file. Any ideas?

    The "list" command is supposed to work, but doesn't. That's something for me to fix.

    Thanks for the report,

    I wondered why Applescript kept erroring everytime i used the list command.
    Thanks for clearing that up.

    I was planning on getting a dir listing and use applescript text item delimiters and iteration to download certain files from an ftp server. Any ideas how i can go about this without getting a directory listing?

    Thanks again

    You can say:

    set file_list to get name of every remote file

    to get a list of all the files in the frontmost transfer window file list.
