I've been trying to access an IBM 4690 server using WinSCP's SFTP from a WinXP SP2 PC and receive the error... "Error listing directory 'c:'. I was using a previous version of WinSCP (not sure how many levels back) but then upgraded to the latest 4.0.5 (Build 354) and received the same results. I've tried changing Remote Directories and protocol versions to no avail. Using a command-line SFTP program such as PSFTP from Putty works just fine. Is this a known issue or could it be investigated?

While researching this error online, I've noticed that several SSH/SFTP clients either list a fix for 4690 in their version change logs or have an existing issue which may provide some insight.

Can you see anything useful in the server's log file?
