Hello,
sometimes winscp pops up the following message:

Unexpected directory listing line "drwxr-xr-x 6 abcdefg-testnogroup 4096 Nov 11 2002 abcdefg-test".
Operation aborted

It seems, that the directory name is too long (on a solaris 8 host) and the winscp cannot handle the missing space between directory name and group identifier. Is there any chance to handle this (e.g. by using a second different directory list format if this error is encountered)?
Regards
Frank

Have you tried SFTP protocol?

nope, the server doesn't run that protocol, just sshd.

SFTP is subsystem of sshd. Have you tried?

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