no folders, no files

Post by henry » Sun Mar 19, 2006 7:42 pm

Sorry for another posting with this title, but I searched now for several hours and none of the solutions I found worked for me.

If I connect to a server of a friend, no folders or files are shown. I can manually change into one directory, but still no files are shown. I can uplaod files to the server, but they are not shown in SmartFTP.

Changing the 'directory listing options' in settings - transfer doesn't show any effect, it makes no difference if none or any combination of them are enabled or disabled.

I reinstalled SmartFTP, without a change.

I have no problems by connecting with a browser or an older version of WS-FTP.

Here is my raw listing:

Code: Select all


drw-r--r--  2 0		0		4096  Mar  7 18:27 Share

-rw-r--r--  1 0		0		0  Feb 28 13:19 time_status

drw-r--r--  3 0		0		4096  Feb 25 04:03 HTML

drw-r--r--  2 0		0		4096  Feb 28 13:18 DATA

drw-r--r--  2 0		0		4096  Feb 23 15:08 Scripts

drw-r--r--  3 0		0		4096  Mar  1 13:10 toddi

and my log:

Any ideas?

Please test it with the latest version from:
https://www.smartftp.com/download

Do you know by any chance what FTP server software is running on the server?

Thanks

Jep, with the version from the link it's working, also with the 'directory listing options' enabled.

And no, I don't know what server software is running on the server. It's some kind of a Linux OS, but that's all I can say. Why are you asking, could there be some incompatibilties with any server software or what?

And what are the differences between the beta version and the final? Can I use the beta without any risks or are there some security or other problems?

I have a similar problem. I had aquired an old alcatel switch from ebay and was attempting to update its operating system. While I could transfer files to it, I couldn't see any files or folders inside the switch. WS_FTP has no such problems.

As henry did before me, I removed all directory listing options with no effect. I even used the beta version posted with no change.

Any ideas?

Aha. Interesting that all these FTP servers running under linux always come up with a slightly different listing format instead of supporting MLSD. I will see that the next version will support the "new" listing format.

We are not planning to support the Alcatel OmniSwitch 6000 device unless you can give us a good reason.
