Some versions of ftp servers will allow for SITE EXEC commands which
might offer you what you're looking for. You have to check with the
sysadmin of the remote machine to find out what ftp server they're
running and if they'll allow you to run something like "site exec df ."
or du or some script they provide to show you how much space is left on
the filesystem. Be aware that some ftp servers consider SITE EXEC a
massively Bad Idea(tm) and a major security issue. You may have to
rethink your approach to doing this sort of thing if all you have for
file transfer is FTP.
Some ftp servers limit transfer either by file or the amount of data
transferred. Again check with the admin on the remote system.
