Topic "Allow manuall entry of file names for hidden files"

One support site that I use all the time for FTP transfers sets not only the directory permissions, but also the file permissions so that they can not be seen by FTP. I am required to manually enter the file names I want to download from the FTP server. However, there does not seem to be a way to do this. I can manually enter the path through the hidden directories using the bookmark feature, but I can not include a file name on the path, so all I can do is move to the remote hidden directory that then appears empty. I have to use windows standard FTP to download these files, but would like it if WinSCP had the apability for me to do it within the product.

How do imagine the interface for such a feature would look like?

I would like to start by asking if this has been resolved? I find myself requiring the same function.. e.g., I'm conneting to an ftp service that has the folders and files hidden. I don't have a problem navigating down the folder tree. However, I don't see how to open an interface to request (get) the file.

You cannot download the file using GUI. But you can use scripting.

I have seen other GUI clients have a xfer button and when a file was not selected it prompts for the file name. Copy/Paste a name and that is submitted to the server. problem solved.
