I tried to explain to you why the Directory Listing Options from 1.x won't work for 2.x, but I'll try again: In 1.x, when an IIS server is detected, the Directory Listing Options specified in the settings are ignored and an internally hard-coded setting is used instead. SmartFTP 2.x does not do this any more since 1) there are IIS version that this does not work for and 2) doing some magic the user does not know of is a bad thing.
The solution is to deselect all Directory Listing Options in 2.x (which basically matches the hard-coded settings of 1.x) for this particular server, so do this in the favorite settings and not globally.
I hope this finally makes it clear.
Your answer is definitely nicer than the mb one.
I'm evaluating SmartFTP 2.0 because I was going to buy SmartFTP 1.1 and now I have to understand if the new release is still useful to me.
I tried different settings for directory listing with no success. Even disabling all the options, as you suggest, doesn't work.
Here is a log of my connection

As you can see the command is "LIST" with no additional options, but I can't see any file or folder.
I want you to note that SmartFTP 1.1 issue a "LIST -aL" command, as I can read from the logs, and it works.
Another note: if I right click on the "/oxys" directory and select "Show raw listing" here is what I get:
01-02-06 06:50PM 30993869 nvidia.zip

I'm not exactly a newby and I believe that the solution is not so simple...
A Microsoft FTP server is quite common on the internet and a default configuration that give such problems doesn't seem so good to me...
