Hello,

I think I've been really carreful with the configuration, but I must be missing something...

So, using WinSCP in SFTP allow fallback, into panels/show hidden files, show inaccesible directories ON , I just can't see a log file into my /var/tmp directory.

Thru SSH, I see the log file...

There are lots of directories with log files that I can list/edit without any problems...

But from time to time, on few directories, I just can't list anything, log or conf files, I don't think it's a matter of extension file, but...

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks ![/img]

What version of WinSCP are you using? What is the log file name?

Hey Prikryl,

V 4.2.5 (build 624)

This problem happens before...(on other releases)
I'm loged as root, and sometimes I may not see .conf or .log files.
I think it might be any type file in fact.
For this example, the log is in /tmp , named syncr.log, but I don't think it's related to the name...

I must say I'm using vserver as well, so the website is in fact :
var/lib/vservers/myWebsite/tmp

Might be a virtualisation problem ?

Yes , Filezilla thru SFTP, same problem...
So it might be a server problem related ?

I don't know...
I'm asking if something into the config of Linux server should disable viewing some files thru windows based explorer applications...(winSCP for example Wink )

But I'm almost sure there's not... But if it's a server related problem, that should explain why few files are not shown...Am I wrong ?
