I would like to know if you can change how the
commands are sent. The are being sent as capital
letters and what I am taking to needs lower case.

This is more of a feature request than a support request,

This won't be changed. RFC 959 which describes FTP says that
commands are not case sensitive.

quote from rfc 959:

The command codes are four or fewer alphabetic characters.
Upper and lower case alphabetic characters are to be treated

identically. Thus, any of the following may represent

the retrieve command:
RETR Retr retr ReTr rETr
