I am unsuccessfully trying to upload files to an ftp server on which I have an account. I can login fine and list the directories and even create new directories. I have tried both passive and active with the same results. The log text is below:

It looks like a bug with the server. It returns garbage in the MLST reply. Contact your web hosting provider and ask them to upgrade to the latest version of Titan FTP Server.

It is not a hosting provider, it's a partner company that we are transfering data to (and I seriously doubt they will make any changes or updates to their ftp server). We are able to upload files fine to this server via the ftp functionality built into Windows 7 (using Win Explorer). I really would prefer to use SmartFTP though. Are there any setting changes I can make in the client to force it to connect and transfer in a manner similar to Explorer?

SmartFTP uses the MLST command and the server's implementation seems to be broken. Contact your partner's server admin and ask them to upgrade to the FTP server software.

btw, just downloaded ws and it's working just fine.

It's because it doesnt use the MLST command and therefore doesn't trigger the bug on the FTP server. But on the other hand it doesn't verify your transfers either.
