Connection to FTP server shows empty root directory

I am using version 5.1.0. build 2625 and I am unable to connect to our work FTP server. When I try to access with my account I only get to the root directory and none of the directories below the root are displayed. I am using passive mode. This FTP site allows multiple users with different permissions. I am able to access this FTP server with FTP applications like WS_FTP_PRO and cute_FTP successfully. I have researched the Winscp message board for something similar but have not found anything to answer my particular situation. The closest article I have found to my situation is the one titled, "Hidden root folder, cannot descend to subfolders" back in 2010.

I really like the layout of the Winscp application and it's simplicity and I would like to get it working for the FTP site that I need to utilize.
Description: Winscp log

Please post Debug 1-level log file from WinSCP as well as log files from WS FTP or Cute FTP or both.

Re: Connection to FTP server shows empty root directory

The following logs are attached:
– WinSCP debug 1 level
– WS_ftp log (successfully shows directories)
– Cute_ftp log (successfully shows directories)

The directories listed in the debug 1 level log are what should be showing up at the root level when attached to FTP server.

Re: Connection to FTP server shows empty root directory

FTP specification in RFC 3659 mandates that there must be a space before filename in MLSD directory listing results
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc3659#section-3.1
entry = [ facts ] SP pathname
