I'm using Winscp 5.1.2, i've done neccessary configurations. since i'm connecting to an external ftp server i have to use ftp with SSL Explicit Encryption. At first no connection was made or established betwn client and server however after opening port 21175 on our PIX 501 firewall connection was established, Retrieving Directories Success but then when Listing Directories error (Listing Directory "/" Could Not Retrieve directory listing, Server Cannot Accept Argument) occurred. Any help please I've been trying it for the last three days.

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

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.
