The server returns the wrong error reply when a file cannot be found: 
MLST BP info for 3 cardholders.pdf 
501 Not a valid pathname.

The 501 reply is wrong. 501 is for syntax errors. From the RFC: 
>501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments.

The correct error code is either 550 or 450. Reference: 
450 Requested file action not taken: file unavailable 
(e.g. file not found, no access) 
550 Requested action not taken: file unavailable (e.g. 
file busy)
