How do I send extra commands and site specific services with the FTP control?

You can use the Command Property to send customized commands to the server. It is equivalent of the command-line FTP applications QUOTE command. In order to set site specific attributes, you can use the SITE command. You can see a list of server specific services by issuing the command HELP SITE.

For example QUOTE SITE somehost.domain can be done by: FTP.Command := "SITE somehost.domain";
