here is one bug or feature I found. When I am trying to copy a small directory from i.e. Linux to Windows, and there is a named pipe in it (
mknod name p), WinSCP stops there and freezes or there comes a "Host is not communicaing for more thant 15 seconds" popup. When deleting that FIFO everything works. Maybe you can implement some check for ugly filetypes.
- WinSCP Version 4.2.7 or older
- Win XP SP3
- SFTP-3 protocol
- Manual copy, GUI,
- Steps to reproduce:
mkdir /tmp/aaa;cd /tmp/aaa;touch a b c x y z; mknod d pipe; then try to copy that dir
aaato your PC.
