Forcing ls output truncation

I have a slow FTP with 100k+ files and I need to get recent files.

When I do ls in Windows FTP client i get 12k results in a minute but that is acceptable in this scenario because those 12k are the most recent.

When I do ls in WinSCP lists all files but it takes over 8 minutes as do get with date mask

Is it possible to force WinSCP to truncate ls output?[/list]

And what happens after the minute? Do you interrupt the script or what?

When I execute Windows ftp's ls it wait for about minute and then dumps 12000 lines with message at the end that output is truncated.
