Topic "Path with quotes by FTP"

Author Message


WinSCP can't work directories with double-quotes.
For example

> CWD aston martin "se"
< 257 "/root/cars/aston martin ""se""" is a new directory

WinSCP regards only "/root/cars/aston martin " as a directory, and "se""" is a new directory as an optional comment.

See RFC 959, Appendix II: the directory name can contain any character; embedded double-quotes should be escaped by double-quotes (the "quote-doubling" convertion).

WinSCP 4.2.1 (Build 428), "Commander" inderface, Windows XP SP3. FTP protocol, passive mode.
