Hey All,
I was hoping someone could help me solve a problem that is really slowing me down at the moment.
When I connect to a computer using WinSCP, all the files on the remote computer appear with a strange square symbol at the end of their names.
To see exactly what I mean I have a screen shot available here.
Although I can send files to the remote computer, I cannot retrieve files from it as I get the following errors: Error 1 Error 2.
I also have the log file available here which seems to be indicating some problem with the file names.
Both computers I am using are operating under Windows 2000 and use cygwin to provide ssh access. I thought it may be an issue with the remote computer so I try accessing the localhost and found the same problem.
Does anyone know what the problem is and how to resolve it?
I'd really apreciate some help,
Thanks,
Stefan

Problem is that your server send windows line endings. I have already one report about this. You may write to its author to ask, if he ever resolved it. Otherwise I would recommend you to switch to SFTP instead of SCP, if your server supports it. Let me know.
