Issue 49 – Support for non-Unix-like systems with FTP

: Core
: Unspecified
: Enhancement
: Medium
: 20
: 5.18.1
Currently we have no motivation to support non-unix-like listing and path formats in FTP.

For details on mainframe servers, see:
Most commonly requested non-unix-like system is Open VMS
Some Windows servers use Windows-like paths (not starting with slash). WinSCP does not support that either:
Windows-like paths: Issue 1074
Significantly improved compatibility with VMS. For other non-UNIX FTP servers, the same compatibility mode can be enabled using raw session settings FtpWorkFromCwd=0
