Sounds like your ~ftp/bin/ls is not set up correctly. Take a look at the
wu-ftp guest HOWTO (http://www.wu-ftpd.org/HOWTO/guest.HOWTO). To quote
from the HOWTO:

   This is the single most FAQ on the wu-ftpd list.  Repeating: if you
   cannot see the contents of the directory, your installed 'ls' is not
   working.  The proper installation procedures for 'ls' vary by operating
   system.  There are some OS specific notes at the bottom of this howto
   that may be of help.
