When using an RA FTP agent with VAX VMS Alpha system the 'versioned' files are not all shown.

Marked in RED there are 2 identical files with different versions (SCJ.TXT;2 and SCJ.TXT;1) which are found in the folder.
Using a LIST the File SCJ.TXT;2 is only shown in the Agent and not both files.

You can still copy / transfer files if you know the exact file name as the above screenshot, marked in green (SCJ.TXT.1), indicates.  The file was transferred correctly.
 
Environment:
OS: VMS Alpha
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: The FTP Agent uses the package org.apache.commons.net. This package removes all duplicates and only leaves the version with the highest version number for each filename.
