True Symbolic Link Resolving

I'd like to get WinSCP to go to the real link location, rather than appearing to have gone to a subdirectory named as the symbolic link.

For example, say I have a directory called 'app' and inside of that directory I have a symbolic link named 'theme-frontend' which points to 'theme/frontend/default/'

I'd like WinSCP to go to 'app/theme/frontend/default/' not simply 'app/theme-frontend/' ...especially in the path bar, because I like to be able to click on other directories like 'frontend/' and go there without having to first go back to 'app' then manually go to 'frontend/' using the commander/explorer folder tree interface.

So, how can this be done? I swear I've seen it happen before.

Re: True Symbolic Link Resolving

WinSCP does what the server tells it to do. So your problem is protocol specific. What protocol are you using?

In this case, it's SCP (SSH) and I don't expect to stop using it. :)
With SCP WinSCP just does "cd subdirectory". It ends up where the remote server ends up after the command. With typical *nix server that would not be resolved to symlink target.
