You can't send all these commands as CURLOPT_QUOTE commands. Doing so really
messes with curl's idea of the state of the connection. The PASV command for
one needs client-side support to open a connection and transfer data which
doesn't happen when you send a QUOTE command. There's really no point
in using libcurl if you're doing this--if your app wants to send ftp
commands directly, then it ought to just open a socket to the ftp server
and do it all itself. The point of using libcurl is to avoid having to
deal with the low-level protocol stuff in the app.
When you supply a URL with the CURLOPT_URL parameter, libcurl will do all
those commands for you. Just give a proper URL (something like
ftp://126.96.36.199//tmp/magnumfw/magnum.xml;type=A looks to be about what
you want) and libcurl will take care of the rest.
