To reveal this page you need to select FTP file protocol on Session page and check Advanced options.
Use Post login commands to specify set of FTP protocol commands that should be issued automatically just after login.
The Use MLSD command for directory listing controls, if WinSCP uses
MLSD or (deprecated)
LIST command for directory listing. When set to Auto (preferred), WinSCP decides based on accounced features of FTP servers. Use Off only, if server’s implementation of
MLSD command has bugs. This feature is available only in the latest beta release. In the latest stable version, this option is configurable using session raw settings.
The Support for listing of hidden files controls if WinSCP should use command
LIST -a for directory listing to request listing of all (including hidden) files. You still need to enable showing hidden files to have them displayed actually.
When set to Auto, WinSCP will try one time to use the
-a switch, unless the server is known not to support it1). If that fails (for whatever reason), it stops using the switch for current session. Some servers may not report an error even if they do not support the switch. This may result into empty directory listing. Disable the option if that happens. The option is not avaiable, if
MLSD command is used for directory listing, see above.
The Force IP address for passive mode connections controls, if WinSCP should use the external IP address of the FTP host instead the IP address provided by the server. This is useful when the IP address is translated (NAT). The option is available for passive mode only. Initially the checkbox is in undefined state, making WinSCP use the external IP address automatically, when the provided IP address is not routable.
