ftp quote command not working

I'm trying to automate transmitting a save file to a client machine.  I've
written an ftp script that works with most clients, but one client doesn't
like the quote command.  I cannot get any quote command to execute

Sample ftp script:
quote rcmd SNDMSG TOUSR(QPGMR) MSG(Hello)
quote time 500

ftp log from sample script:
257 "QGPL" is current library.
Enter an FTP subcommand.
> quote rcmd SNDMSG TOUSR(QPGMR) MSG(Hello)
500 Syntax error, command unrecognized: 'rcmd SNDMSG TOUSR(QPGMR)
Enter an FTP subcommand.
> quote time 500
500 Syntax error, command unrecognized: 'time 500'
Enter an FTP subcommand.

Local and remote machines at v5r2.  I can initiate the ftp communication
successfully. The binary/put command works successfully.  I cannot find if
the quote command can be restricted anywhere on the iSeries.  Doesn't seem
to have an ftp exit point configured.  Same results when I manually type 
the ftp commands as in sample script.

If I telnet to client machine and perform ftp '' then the quote
commands execute successfully.
  257 "QGPL" is current library.
> quote time 500
  250 Inactivity time-out set to 500 seconds.

Any help is appreciated,
Bruce in AR
