I am running WinSCP under Windows 8.1. I want to use it to transfer files from a Fedora 20 installation on another machine on my local network. I managed to transfer some files earlier using a flash drive to a 3T external usb drive attached to that machine. , When I open WinSCP under Windows 8.1, it shows .* files (and directories) such as .bashrc in the local directory I am using on the 3 T external drive, but the remote listing for the Fedora 20 machine doesn't show those files, although I know they are there from listing them at the machine itself.

Is there some way to get WinSCP show the .* files in the remote listing?

I want to be able to do that because the purpose of the whole exercise it to check that I have put everything on the Fedora 20 machine in a directory on the external drive, or to transfer anything I missed. The Windows 8.1 machine also has a Fedora 21 installation. I will need the Fedora 20 files transferred to the external USB drive attached to this computer to finish setting up Fedora 21.
