Could someone post the results from the "remotehelp" command after logging in to a crossftp server?

What do you mean by remote help?

After you have logged into a crossftp server, you can issue commands. The dir command will give you a list of files in the directory, the cd command will allow you to change directories, the help command will bring up the list of commands available in your ftp utility.
The "remotehelp" command gives you a list of commands that are available on the ftp server. You can access these by typing quote and the command.

Through some other searching, I noticed that all the commands are sometimes not listed by this method.

RFC 959 lists all the commands that should be available in ftp and RFC 3659 is a proposed list of commands that a few ftp servers have implemented.

The command I need to know if it functions is the MLST command, which was proposed in RFC 3659.
When you are logged in type "quote mlst" at the prompt and see if you get a more verbose listing of the directory. If "quote mlst *" gives you a verbose listing of the files in the directory? This should include the file creation date/time and the last file modification date/time along with some other stuff.
