I've confirmed I am connecting properly, and navigating to the correct remote dir.  I've also
confirmed that the target works on a Unix FTP server.  I read one posting suggesting that
there is a flag that can be set for MS FTP servers?  Any ideas on how I can get this task
to with MS FTP would be greatly appreciated.

I think that there are some problems with the MS FTP server and the ant 
task and commons-net at the moment.
