Integration into ActiveX Scripting?

I am currently attempting to automate some of my frequent ftp processes that I currently handle manually. I have many automatic ftp processes using the simple ncftp program, but now I need to make use of the "LIST" or "NLST" raw ftp commands, and this is not supported (at least not well) in my simple ftp program. Any advice you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. FYI: I am attempting to run a DTS Package on an MSSQL Server. Typically I run throught ActiveX scripting and .bat files, but I am open to anything.
