Topic "LS does not show files that other FTP clients do"

Author Message


I have an FTP site which does not return a file on an "ls" operation. Other clients (FileZilla, Windows FTP) do return the file I am expecting and that does exist on the remote site. Here is the log from FileZilla in which the expected file(s) are successfully shown. Yes, I have tried a "get" of the file outright. Is this a limitation with WinSCP and the FTP proxy on the remote end?

Can you post or email me a complete log file of both WinSCP and Filezilla?
