Yep - or at least make sure the client is in "debug" mode - it may spew
out the messages/codes you're wanting in debug mode.

If you need the same behaviour from your ftp clients on all platforms,
you will need to install a different ftp client on at least some of
them.  The native ftp(1) programs are quite different on all three of
those platforms are quite different.

I hear ncftp is nice.
