I'm attempting to copy files from a VMS server to a local directory using FTP protocol. During a file copy I receive a 'File Specification syntax error.'
Comparing file listing in 'Total Commander' GUI vs. 'WinSCP' GUI screens, I notice that WinSCP does not show the file extension numbers appended to the end of the filename. Ex: test.log;1
I know this is a VMS style dir/filename convention. Does WinSCP not support this?
I believe this is the main issue why I can't complete file transfers. Even though I receive the 'File Specification syntax error', an empty file (0 bytes) of the correct filename is created in the local directory. So, it somewhat works, but I believe the main issue is the VMS filename syntax.
Any help would be appreciated.
