Topic "Problem with a filename beginning with hash (#) ?"

Hello!
I've used WinSCP for the first time.
I'm using the Install Package downloaded about 2004.04.23 19:00 CEST.

*** PROBLEM ***
I'm logging on the FreeBSD 4.7 with a default shell set to /bin/tcsh
During logging I got a warning message:

Error listing directory "/home/ni".
Unexpected directory listing line "-rw------- 1 ni wheel 791 25 Wrz 2002 #freebsd.pl.tlumaczenie".
Operation aborted

After that, I could be able to see most directory entries, but the file #freebsd.pl.tlumaczenie and other files beginning with the hash (#) sign are not listed. Note, that hidden files are not listed too - although I have set "Show hidden files" in configuration.

Than, I'm logging to a FreeBSD 4.8 with /bin/tcsh and I got a message:

Error listing directory "/home/ni".
Unexpected directory listing line "drwxr-xr-x 6 ni wheel 512 15 Kwi 23:00 .".
Operation aborted
*** END OF PROBLEM ***

Is the problem in polish configuration of date? (I guess this after reading FAQ and some forum posts)... Wouldn't it be possible for WinSCP to ignore those three letters of month in listing?

Wouldn't it be possible to WinSCP to support international settings of systems in the future (as putty does)? We could help - if needed...

Best regards!

Yes it is.

Please wait for SFTP support.

If you still talk about month, Putty does not do anything like this, it has no reason for this.

For list of reasons WinSCP cannot parse directory listing and possible resolutions, see documentation.
