#18 FTP plugin against Tandem server

rob walker

The Tandem (aka Compaq Himalaya platform) provides a
standard (albeit limited) FTP server. However the
Tandem uses filenaming as follows:


rather than the convention pathname unix structures

Most general FTP commands will work with this, however
the FTP server does a "CWD \" immediately after login
which causes the FTP server to fail.

Activity Log is as follows:

[debug] FtpClient: received response: 220 FTP SERVER
