Monitoring FTP traffic (bytes received) and Aborting download

Subject: Monitoring FTP traffic (bytes received) and Aborting download

I'm trying to develop app, which connects to FTP and then performs operations such us uploading and downloading data in order to measure bitrate...

It's already working, but i still can't figure out, how to measure bytes received or sent which i could use for progress bar. Is that even possible somehow with MATLAB's limited ftp fcn?
(f.e. using some java ftp class, sockets? i don't have much experience with this)

i´ve already tried using windows cmd ftp client, it works until i connect to ftp, but than hangs

and question 2:
is there a way to stop running mget/mput fcn in progress? User should be able to abort download... (not a word about matlab's ftp auto reconnect behavior which drives me crazy... )

thx, any help would be appreciated
