As soon as I get connected to OS X Panther with WinSCP it gives directory error listings:

Unexpected directory listing line "drwxr-xr-x 19 ckizer ckizer 646 17 Jul 07:30 .".
Operation aborted


Here is my listing with SSH:

[Court-Kizers-Computer:/Users/ckizer] root# ls -al

Can you fix your program to allow it to work properly

Please contact me via email.

Date format in your listing is not compatible with WinSCP. It expectes standard english format like 'Jul 17 07:30' instead of yours '17 Jul 07:30'. Try to change this or use SFTP, which does not have this kind of problems.

I have a similar error when trying to connect to a machine (socrates.icsl.ucla.edu, 128.97.90.195, SunOS socrates 5.5.1 Generic_103640-40 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2), but the date seems to be ok in my case:

Unexpected directory listing line "drwxr-xr-x 32 iseli 4096 Jul 24 12:45 .".
Operation aborted

I also heard, that if a banner or welcome message is displayed, this could be the problem. Or is it the prompt which asks for the terminal type?
With ssh I get:

Last login: Thu Jul 24 12:43:41 2003 from user-11205dn.dsl

******************************************************************************
socrates Solaris 2.5.1
******************************************************************************

You have mail.

Hello iseli, welcome to socrates.

Please confirm (or change) your terminal type.
TERM = (xterm)
Erase set to Backspace
stty crt -tabs
iseli@socrates[+31]

THANKS

There is group name missing in your listing. Read Requirements. Try also SFTP.

Thanks for the reply. Very Happy

No sftp on our server though.
Saw that in bash the command ls -al does not list the group. It should rather be ls -alg. But this is our configuration, since 'man ls' says that ls -l should give the long format (including the group name).

Tried ksh, success, - though copying does not work:
Copying: Command failed with return code 127.
scp is called, but we have only scp2 installed, so I made a symbolic link scp to scp2. Now the error is:
Command failed with return code 1. Guess we have to do some changes on our machines... Rolling Eyes

WinSCP cannot use scp2. You should install SFTP.

For list of reasons WinSCP cannot parse directory listing and possible resolutions, see documentation.
