The NLST command is used to retrieve a list of files from the server over a previously established data connection. Unlike the LIST command, the server will send only the list of files and no other information on those files. If a parameter is specified, the server returns the list of files contained in the provided path. If no parameter is present, the server uses the client's current working directory.
