Topic "Windows 7 error listing directory error changing directory"

Author Message


Im using a fresh install of winscp 4.3.2. I tried with winscp5.1 and it failed. So the problem is when trying to connect to my server using SFTP through windows 7 and i can connect to /home but i cant get to the root/, it keeps disconnecting giving the error " Error listing directory /" and " Error changing director /"

I'm using the GUI version of winscp and not using command line.

What's going on?
Thanks for any help

Have you tried any other SFTP client?

Please attach a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
