WinSCP .NET Assembly cannot download Dot files from Serv-U

When I use "WinSCP .NET Assembly" to GetFiles("/.ignore", "xxx") from Serv-U server.

I found before RETR /.ignore the MLST /.ignore will excute, then Serv-U server return "550 No files found", the winscp throw a "SessionRemoteException: Can't get attributes of file '/.ignore'" error, download fail.

How to user WinSCP .NET Assembly to download dot files from serv-u?

Thanks very much!

Can you download that file using any FTP client at all?

Yes, I can download the '.ignore' file with FileZilla or WinSCP Client.
But could not download in C# with WinSCP .Net assembly.
session.GetFiles("/.ignore", @"D:\backup\.ignore");

Post a log file from WinSCP GUI showing download of those files.

It's possible that the server returns dot-files in MLSD or LIST response, but fails MLST command for them. That's imo a (server's) bug.

Why do you even call GetFiles explicitly for that single file?

One possible workaround is doing something like GetFiles("/.ignor[e]", "xxx") - As the parameter is file mask (although it can match a single file only), WinSCP should use MLSD or LIST (to retrieve list of files) instead of MLST (to retrieve attributes of the specific file).

Use your method GetFiles("/[.]ignore", "xxx"), I solve this problem.
