1.2.0pre3 and later
By default, proftpd sends multiline responses as per RFC 959, i.e.: 200-First line More lines... 200 Last line RFC 2228 specifies that "6xy" response codes will be sent as follows: 600-First line 600-More lines... 600 Last line Note that 2228 ONLY specifies this for response codes starting with '6'. Enabling this directive causes ALL responses to be sent in this format, which may be more compatible with certain web browsers and clients. Also note that this is NOT the same as wu-ftpd's multiline responses, which do not comply with any RFC. Using this method of multilines is more likely to be compatible with all clients, although it isn't strictly RFC, and is thus not enabled by default.
