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

Re: Bug? "Unexpected directory listing line"

You have reversed month name and day in directory listing. WinSCP does not support it. The next version will. Also try SFTP instead of SCP, with SFTP you should not have this problem.

Bug? "Unexpected directory listing line"


When logging into an Apple Server (FreeBSD) I keep getting:

Unexpected directory listing line 'drwxr-xr-x 46 duggleby tumuser 1564 14 Feb 11:13 .'.
Operation aborted

The Listing using SSH and "ls -al" gives me:

[filebruegge:~] duggleby% ls -al
total 208
drwxr-xr-x 46 duggleby tumuser 1564 14 Feb 11:13 .
drwxr-xr-x 157 root wheel 5338 13 Feb 17:07 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 duggleby tumuser 3 21 Oct 16:39 .CFUserTextEncoding
-rwxr-xr-x 1 duggleby tumuser 15364 9 Feb 14:35 .DS_Store
drwx------ 115 duggleby tumuser 3910 2 Feb 18:22 .Trash

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
