I would like to know wheather it is possible to find out size of file the user is downloading on Linux server using ftp? apart from going his home directory.

can you give us more context around this? the filesize will be passed as part of the FTP protocol, but it's not exactly trivial to get at it, and you've given no context around what kind of scenario or environment this is for.
