Re: OpenVMS Support in WinSCP

WinSCP does not support FTP servers that do not use Unix-style paths.

OpenVMS Support in WinSCP

I need to connect to an OpenVMS FTP server, but it fails:
Error listing directory 'DISK$CWER:[CWER]'.
Could not retrieve directory listing
Failed to set default directory to DISK$CWER:[CWER]/DISK$CWER:[CWER].
file specification syntax error

I've searched a bit and found, that others have such issues too:
And also reports that FileZilla is working ok with OpenVMS FTP servers (I have not verified it for myself).

Any hints what can be done to make WinSCP work with Open VMS FTP servers?

Thanks and regards,
