I try to Download several files from a service provider. He is using a "Mark III FTP Server Version 1.70".
I can connect to the server but when I post the command "ls" or "dir" I get the error "Error listing the directory 'root'. Could not retrieve directory listing invalid path."
But I can change into directories.
WinSCP Version 5.5.5 on Server 2008 R2
I'm using the commandline (later it will be a script).
The remote directory structure is:
This are my comands I'm using:
winscp> open Phoenix/GXS Connecting to 126.96.36.199 ... Connected with 188.8.131.52. Waiting for welcome message... Connected Starting the session... Reading remote directory... Session started. Active session:  Phoenix/GXS winscp> option transfer ascii transfer ascii winscp> cd /receive receive winscp> ls Error listing directory 'receive'. Could not retrieve directory listing invalid path. (A)bort, (R)etry, (S)kip: Skip winscp> quote site parm=GNI Unknown command 'quote'. winscp>
quote site parm=GNI
The wired is when I try the commands via the windows build-in ftp all works.
