wm IS FTP connect to MS FTP Service problem

Has anyone experienced problems with trying to connect to and retrieve files from an FTP server that has additional login “banner text”. We’re getting an error message back:

[COLOR=black][COLOR=windowtext][FONT=Arial]Could not connect to ftp server: com.wm.net.ftpCException[/color]

The connection and the file retrieval works properly if we ask for the banner text on the server side to be removed, but this would not be the ideal solution.
