I connect to my webspace using ftp but when folder is listed, the "Rights" Column is empty. So I switched on logging and found out that the server sends this information. Here is a bit of my log:

I run WinSCP 5.5.4 (Build 4433) on a Windows 8 system. FTP Connection is in passive mode. I try to run WinSCP native and in Windows XP or Windows 7 compatible mode. No success.

I tried filezilla as another ftp client and filezilla does show the file rights. Any idea what is going wrong?

WinSCP can present/work with Unix-style permissions only. Filezilla shows the permissions from the listing as is. I do not think this is useful, as it is not really human-readable, unless you dig into FTP protocol specification. One cannot even convert these permissions to Unix-style, as the Perm fact defines permissions for current user only (not for owner/group/world). Any ideas?
