files ending with .cgi are not correctly transferred

I've done several tests before I was sure that WinSCP was causing the problem.
When files are ending with '.cgi' de files are not correctly transferred. When I rename the same file and I give it a short name like 'test', everything is fine.

Re: files ending with .cgi are not correctly transferred

What does it mean "not correctly transferred"?

The .cgi extension is in WinSCP default ASCII/text transfer mask.
Maybe you need to use binary mode. Though the recent versions of WinSCP always use binary mode (by default). Make sure it's true for your installation.
