File does not exists, session.FileExists returns false even though file is exists into list

When I tried with session.FileExists("test.txt"), this returns false even though the file shows when I execute session.ListDirectory("/").
I have attached my log. I am using vb.net.
Description: Log of Listing and file exists

Your server is broken. It claims support for MLSD/MLST commands. Yet then it fails, when WinSCP tries using MLST command to test the file existence:

Try setting FtpUseMlsd to 1:

Let us know.
