Depending on your ftp server implementation, the directory that you
are looking for may not be available. An ftp server doesn't 'usually'
give you access to the entire filesystem - it uses it's own
'directories' to make available various places on the filesystem e.g.
'work' might point at /usr/local/share/work_in_progress. Often an ftp
