Hello,
I have been having a heck of a time using FTP, so a colleage suggested I try WinSCP. I have installed it and I am running into the following error message when trying to connect:
Code:

Unexpected directory listing line "-rw-r--r--   1 mediimage             43690 Oct  6 01:23 100027.gif".
Operation aborted


Just an FYI, the directory it is trying to list has over 17,000 files (not sure if that is an issue here).

I am copying over 300 more files (approximately 12 Meg). When I leave logging on, the copy works (with logging I get a reading direcotry error). After copying I get the same error when trying to display the directory. Any suggestions?

WinSCP needs group name in directory listing. Please read Requirements. You may try SFTP instead of SCP.

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