We need to SFTP files to a government site and their standard is to not allow Directory Listing "as this is considered a security vulnerability." I understand that this cannot be disabled, but wondered if a fix will be added soon as we are already on version 5.5.1. We intend to script the FTP but also need to send files manually on occasion. Any info on this would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Do you refer to the fact that WinSCP reads remote directory contents before file transfer to collect data needed for upload?

Though we take your request to consideration, we do not plan to change this in near feature, unless there's higher demand.

Ok, thank you. I find that PSFTP meets this requirement.
