Hi, When trying to connect to an SSH server I get the following error and am then unable to transfer any files. It looks like it would be a permissions error, but I get the same error when connecting to two different servers (and one of them works fine when using Filezilla)

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Error listing directory '/xxxxxx'.
---------------------------
Server returned empty listing for directory '/xxxxx'.
---------------------------
OK Help
---------------------------

Also attached is the log entry:

I do not see any problem in the log. The server returns no directory listing for the path, so WinSCP reacts accordingly.
Are there any files there? Does Filezilla show them?

Just a quick hint that worked for me (and might help someone else that has the same error)
When I had not execution rights on the folder I was trying to access I got this error messsage.
