invalid option error

Alex, thank you for this great utility, I discovered it a couple weeks ago and it has come in handy on multiple occasions already.
I  was getting an error connecting to an FTPES server.  The error was "invalid option" and this occurred during connection when checking the UTF-8 feature.  I changed the source code on the FTPClient to swallow any exceptions that may occur during the feature check.  This will allow a connection to resume (most of the time safely) and enable the client to interact with the host.

I'm sure someone else will run into this issue, so I want to put it out there.

Thanks again,

thanks for your suggestion, I will add it to the source code.

Could you please provide the FTPS server product name and version casusing the problem?

Based on the certificate I believe it was an Ipswitch WS_FTP server...I'm sorry I couldn't get the version number.
